Special promenade performances lead audiences between three of the City’s most beautiful historic churches – St Mary-at-Hill, St Olave Hart Street and St Stephen Walbrook – in celebration of wildflowers. A poem and a piece of music will be presented as a gift to each of the 15 species of wildflower, before the flowers themselves are planted in the churchyards. In each church, solo musicians give the premières of the specially commissioned miniatures, and performers read the new poems. Special bee poems lead us between the wildflowers, like a bee moving from flower to flower. Featuring 15 composers, ranging from young artists from the Guildhall School to Jonathan Dove, Julian Grant and Alec Roth; young poets from the new Salt Anthology as well as writers John Agard, Kay Syrad, Sean Borodale and Colette Sensier.
