Conversations with Aussie icon Jenny Kee and performances from Ancient Greek ‘Bacchant’ dancers are some of the highlights for The Garden of Earthly Delights on the 11-12 November 2017, as the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah officially celebrates its 30th birthday.
Over 50 live performers, musicians and visual artists will engage in song, dance, poetry, theatre and exhibition in an event which will transform Australia’s best-loved, cool-climate, botanic garden into a vibrant stage for one magical weekend.
“Partly inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s world-famous painting with the same title, The Garden of Earthly Delights will be a unique fusion of nature and culture for all the community to enjoy” said Susan Cochrane, festival Artistic Director.
Susan went on to say, “Surrounded by pristine World Heritage Listed Area, the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden has such a powerful energy, it epitomises the untouched beauty that attracts so many creatives to the greater Blue Mountains region.
Entry to The Garden of Earthly Delights is free on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November with kid-friendly activities and delicious gourmet food options to explore. Dressing up is encouraged.
