Hague Primary School “Blue class”

It’s always a nice suprise to see how engaged children can be with horticulture when used in school lessons. And this was no exception. When the Blue Class at Hague Primary School was presented with a prize for winning the Wildlings photo competition this afternoon, they showed us their complete class project which was made into a book. We liked it so much, we will include this in the exhibition launch tomorrow evening.

A big thanks to Quickcrop for generously donating a voucher for seeds for the school to grow in their flowerbeds. Each child was presented with their own ‘Honey bee seed mix’ too!

Pop-Up Restaurant

Due to unforseen circumstances, the Pop-Up Restaurant will not now take place.  Sorry to anyone considering this event, but it is something we cannot rectify at such short notice. The bar will still be open from 6-30, and we will be there through the evening to meet people in the gallery.

We’re please to see that  Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time Chelsea Fringe show will be recorded at Oxford House the weekend before, on Sunday 18th. The Wildlings exhibition will be on display in the gallery by then, so you will get a sneak preview before the official launch and  attend the GQT recording at the same time.
