meanwhile summoned the details of Burn Valley Pleasure Gardens past in order to ignite its future. A programme of public events and activities in the Gardens referred to and examined some of it's original ambitions, features and facilities, many of which have been variously neglected, destroyed, redeveloped and rationalized over a lifespan of more than 100 years. Alongside this programme, a series of interviews and casual conversations with local people revealed further historical data, intimate memories and myths relating to the Gardens, which informed an animated archive that is now being used to lever funding to make permanent improvements to the site.
