Wild Longings


Wild Longings by Curious. Photo by Hugo Glendinning.

Join this luscious garden tour sown with stories of transformation, conservation tips and songs, and rooted with a desire to provide succour to each other and the environment. Wild Longings invites you on a sensuous horticultural journey that celebrates inclusivity, interconnectivity and survival. 

Encounter the enchanting tour-guide Helen Paris and her passionate ode to the transgender Fortingall Yew, get hands-on tips from raconteur gardener Leslie Hill and let chanteuse Claudia Barton beguile you with a fantasia of botanical song accompanied by exquisite cuisine created from the garden itself. 

Wild Longings seeds conversation about how we can provide succour to each other and our environment, and how acts of rooting and uprooting might help sustain and nurture the things we hold dear.

Wild Longings is commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival, funded by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and subsidised by an Arts Council England Project Fund. Produced by Artsadmin.

This performance will be part of the Knotty festival of performance taking place from 6-9 June 2019.
