Summer of Sound at Wakehurst
Pause. Breathe. Listen.
Do you hear the steady drum of the woodpecker? Or the whispers of the forest?
This summer, Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex, will be brought alive by a symphony of sounds. Six striking large-scale installations situated across the landscape will delicately and playfully inspire a greater connection to nature. Find a new dimension to the term 'surround sound' as the natural noises of our vast, wild gardens are amplified and explored by our award-winning sound artists.
Summer of Sound runs 9 July – 12 September, included in garden day entry.
