This summer join Harewood House in the Walled garden and the Bothy at Harewood for Seeds of Hope, a new immersive exhibition which commemorates the end of the First World War, and a time of optimism and change.
Seeds of Hope will explore life at Harewood in 1918 through the eyes of the gardeners who lived and worked in The Bothy and the Walled Garden. Visitors will be able to step back in time to a post-war garden complete with heritage fruit, vegetables and flowers as well as heritage goats and chickens. The exhibition will commemorate the experiences of those who worked on the estate 100 years ago, exploring themes of self-sufficiency, resilience, healing and hope.
Seeds of Hope has been created by Lord Whitney a creative studio based in Leeds.
“We’re delighted to be working with Lord Whitney, who will take our Bothy and Walled Garden back in time, to create a fantastic, immersive experience for our visitors. We want to invite people to come and see what life was like in the grounds of Harewood House when the country emerged from a time of darkness in to a period of light.”
Jane Marriott, Director of Harewood House Trust
The Harewood Horse Box will be serving hot drinks, cold drinks, chilled Prosecco and Cream Teas. Music, demonstrations, displays and activities will bring the experience to life.
