Wild Longings invites you on a sensuous horticultural journey that celebrates inclusivity, interconnectivity and survival. 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.

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 a really special piece of theatre… It really makes you stop and think about what we are leaving for the future generations”

Desperately Seeking Something…

“This collection of horticultural musings and quiet cabaret is a delight”
