HIDDEN GARDENS Tramway. 25 Albert Drive. 0845 330 3501. Opens Sat 21 Jun.

With over a year of consultations and planning. nva arts organisation is finally unveiling the greatly anticipated Hidden Gardens. A 5000m“ space situated to the rear of Tramway. it will be one of the first

permanent public gardens developed through a large scale artistic


On the opening Saturday (21 Jun). a Ceremony of Light is to be held between 9.30pm and 1am where visitors will be given lanterns to place within the gardens to the sound of Scottish harpist Savourna Stevenson and the Tibetan Singing Bowl Orchestra. The Tramway cafe will be serving food and the bar

stays open into the wee small hours.

With input from the local communities. the vision of Angus Farquhar and landscape architects Rolf Roscher and Chris Rankin of City Design Co- operative, nva has put together a contemporary and structured garden. After consultation with the many religious groups in the Pollokshields area. it will be a space filled with many different religious influences.

Designed to create reflection and peace. and incorporate many people's idea of paradise, the gardens are made up of a formal open space with formalised flower beds and the original 30m chimney as the centre piece. Joined by tree lined pathways. the space can be used purely for wandering and wondering or taking part in the planned events and workshops.

The area was originally a seed and tree nursery and finally an industrial site before lying derelict for many years. With this new garden, and the art environment of Tramway, it is sure to be a welcome addition to Glasgow. and especially the Southside. Apart from offering an open space in a built up area. it will also allow the many different local communities and groups to come

together and enjoy a hidden slice of paradise. (Jane Hamilton)
