HOLIDAYS IN HOXTON

at Hoxton Trust Community Garden

Thanks to funding from National Lottery, we will be opening the garden to the general public every weekend from May to September.

These include:

  • Bouncy castle
  • Face painting
  • Live music with musicians from Hoxton Hall
  • Performances from The Grand Union Orchestra
  • International Food Festival
  • July 7-10, performances of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the East London Shakespeare Festival

CAGE TROLLEY PROJECT

at The Yard behind
156 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH

We are creating a seasonal moving garden from a recycled supermarket cage trolley. The trolley will be filled with containers of various sizes containing our home made compost. Out of these we’ll grow a melange of flowers and climbers, food and foliage. This will create a living mobile plant/art installation for Hoxton Street.

This is totally free and promises to be a fun and fruitful experience for both those who create and those who just enjoy. If you would like to get involved in this creative endeavour please contact Stephen.

Alternatively, just drop by the garden on the days Stephen works – Monday and Tuesday – and talk to him directly.
