A guided night walk to experience Waterlow Park after dark with LUX's Creative Ecologist Richard Layzell. 

at LUX

This is a rare chance to experience Waterlow Park after dark and when the gates are locked, dog- and people-free. Numbers strictly limited.

LUX’s Creative Ecologist Richard Layzell will lead a small group on a guided walk through the park, describing a series of local and global ecological and anecdotal experiences. Expect live demonstrations, shared knowledge, intermissions and surprises. Amongst other things, Layzell will introduce his collaborator, Kino Paxton, the sound of Mardalsfossen (one of Norway’s largest waterfalls), the marshy ground at the foot of the hill, the horrors of grass, Levelling as a guerrilla activity, ash ‘growback’ and the legacy of Andrew Marvell.

The 30min night walk concludes with hot soup in the Conservatory of the LUX. Please wear warm clothes and be prepared for rain, hail or snow. Richard would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal tour guides of Sydney, Alice Springs and Melbourne Botanical Gardens as an inspiration for this work.
