PoliNations Update: 15 - 18 September
As a mark of respect for the period of mourning ahead of Her Majesty the Queen’s funeral on Monday 19 September, we have revised the PoliNations programme.
The PoliNations garden will remain open until Sunday 18 September as planned, providing a place for reflection as well as to explore the space. At 8pm on Sunday, following the final Sunset Shift, we will observe the nationwide minute of silence.
Also on Sunday, we are inviting the public to our Plant Giveaway, which will allow thousands of plants and shrubs to go back out and take root in homes and green spaces across Birmingham. Plants will be available from the Wondersphere in Chamberlain Square from 12pm on a first-come-first-served basis, with one plant given per person.
The revised programme includes free workshops in the WonderSphere, the creation of beautiful Rangoli street art and living sculptures inspired by key plants and flowers from the garden. A number of activities, including The Ballistic Seed Party will no longer take place. For further updates, keep checking the website and our social media channels.
The visitor feedback and enthusiasm for PoliNations has been fantastic. We are not able to extend its presence in Victoria Square, but we hope it will be able to take root in another city soon.
