Perhaps one of the most exciting features at the Chelsea Flower Show this year is the interactive acoustic garden by Papworth Trust; something which has never before been hosted at the world recognised event.
Joining forces to make show history are world-famous solo percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie and leading disabled charity, Papworth Trust. Their garden, ‘Together We Can’ takes inspiration from Papworth Trust’s campaign, ‘I Can’, which launched in 2014 with Paralympians fronting the campaign, which aimed to show disabled people for what they can do.
Reflecting Evelyn’s passion and ability, the garden was designed based on the natural rhythm in the landscape. As a deaf musician, one of Dame Evelyn’s aims is to show that you can create music from almost anything.
