Secret Garden Party
21-24 July 2016, Secret Garden Party Festival
In July 2016, we landed our mothership in the heart of the Secret Garden Party, where we installed ourselves once again as the gardeners’ favourite renegade guides to the galaxy.
2016 promised to be bigger, brighter and louder than ever before with an extended programme running from Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th of July. We took gardeners on a journey around the cosmos to discover how facts are always stranger than fiction.
The Guerilla Science tents burst at the seams with neuroscientists, astrophysicists and extra-terrestrial experts, alongside a sprinkling of live music, space yoga, comedy and a special performance from beatboxing champion Bellatrix. Gardeners came face to face with human-sized mutant flies and listened to their stories of travelling deep into outer space. Visitors marveled at Tim Maynard’s ‘most photogenic’ Mini-Zoo, getting hands on and instagram-ready with chameleons, snakes and tarantulas while discovering their superhero powers.
We also be teleported our Intergalactic Travel Bureau into the festival site, with travel agents and intrepid planetary experts on hand helping Gardeners select their next extraterrestrial holiday destination. Just check out our gallery of photographs to the exciting programming we brought this year!
