There’s a keyboard player and a drummer ready to play some uplifting tunes below a giant disco ball.
No, I’m not talking about a 1970s inspired Glee episode. I am of course talking about our Garden interactive gallery!
It may not look like a typical garden – for a start it’s indoors. However, with a bit of imagination and some tenuous links, things are more similar than they first appear.
The giant shimmering disco ball on the ceiling represents our sun; tweeting song birds are replaced by a voice changer, an echo machine and musical instruments; long plastic yellow spaghetti is our flora; the water area is our pond and we have a tree house (without the tree part) as well. Throw in some giant LEGO and a big red skip and there you have it – a garden.
The water area is without a doubt the most popular exhibit within the Garden, although in my opinion it’s all about the giant LEGO. Our visitors can be so creative, building anything from animals to armchairs.
Below shows reconstructed creations that our visitors have built.
Explainer Fact: We have a selection of hand puppets that include a hedgehog, a red squirrel and a strange mutated crow that has separate arms and wings!
