The Future Machine: When This Tree Blossoms…

The Future Machine: When This Tree Blossoms…

When This Tree Blossoms…

Wednesday 12th April

in Christ Church Gardens

(Ilkeston Road, Nottingham – opposite Primary)


4pm Free family activities & Future Machine will appear
6.30pm Something Amazing Will Happen For All

At the beginning of 2023 all the shrubs and plants were removed from Christ Church Gardens

with plans to plant a wildflower meadow and create a new playground.

From ground zero we watch what plants have survived and return, as the cherry trees go into blossom.

We will speak to the future. Something amazing will happen.

With Future Machine, Mr X, Frank Abbott, and Toy Library

When the Future Comes is a series of artist’s interventions each witnessed by a mysterious and mystical device – the Future Machine.

 A newly formed ritual or special occasion will emerge as the Future Machine appears

in Oxfordshire, Nottingham, Cumbria, Somerset and London

every year – until 2050.
