WORK THE EAST LONDON WATERWAYS THIS SUMMER WITH HOEGAARDEN
This weekend sees the launch of ‘The Floating Gardens’ by Hoegaarden – a one-of-a kind barge packed with unexpected delights, designed to open minds to new ideas, sounds, sights and tastes in the midst of busy urban life.
Moored outside Number 90, Hackney Wick, ‘The Floating Gaardens’ will be open to the public for the next four weeks from 30 July until 21 August. It will set sail every weekend along East London’s waterways up to six times daily.
Budding with over 500 different plants and shrubs and a unique Soundscape Gaarden, where your ears change the taste of Hoegaarden beer, as a twist of a dial heightens sweet flavours at one extreme and boosts sour notes at the other. The scientifically proven soundscape is designed by local Hackney-based artist Nathaniel Williams in collaboration with Oxford University**.
Those who climb aboard will not only be able to discover the Soundscape Gaarden for themselves, but will also be treated to complementary Hoegaarden served in a special-edition pint glass by Visual Artistic Director, Emma Charlton, whilst dining on paired canapés including smoked chicken and salmon and sweet treats, including white peaches and fudge.
With each sailing accommodating up to 12 people, it’s set to be a must-do experience in London this summer. Tickets are now available to be booked through a draw-style system on the website: www.floatinggaardens.co.uk.
When not sailing, ‘The Floating Gaardens’ will be open to the public from Wednesdays to Fridays, and used as a beer garden where guests can enjoy the subtle citrus and zingy coriander notes of Hoegaarden in a lush, green setting.
