Harrison's Garden (part of Museums at Night festival)

27 October 2015 to 31 October 2015

THG has joined up with internationally renowned artist Luke Jerram to create 'Harrison's Garden' a new art installation featuring 1,000 clocks.

After defeating other UK venues to win the chance to work with Luke Jerram for this year's Museums at Night festival, THG launches an ambitious new installation: Harrison's Garden. Luke Jerram will create a 'garden of time'. Winding pathways will draw visitors through the shifting landscape. Each area of the installation will sound different. The public will recognise some of the clocks from their home and their past. The cacophony of clock sounds will heighten the visitor's awareness of time passing.

This installation is kindly sponsored by Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood auctioneers
