'Every Garden Needs a Shed@ Metis Festival 2009, 2010, 2011

The Metis Festival is in London next week, and the Director of the Reford Garden and founder of the International Festival, Alexander Reford  is showing  Phillippe Baylucq’s beautiful film for the Society of Garden Designers.  Gardens at the Festival this year include  plenty of peculiarities including barbed wire and trenches, algal drapes and  chain link veils – against which 10 sheds  might seem tame to some.  Nevertheless, the sheds, originally designed as a 10th anniversary ‘present’ for the Festival,  have proved to be the most popular garden voted by the visitors,  hence their return for the 3rd year.
After the film there will be a discussion chaired by Tim Richardson.
Tickets are still available form the SGD for:
”Twice Upon a Garden – Tuesday 7th June – 11am-3pm
