1 Victoria Square, Birmingham B3, UK

PoliNations invites you to Step into a spectacular city-centre garden of magical proportions where you will be welcomed by an epic array of colour and nature. 

Giant architectural trees and thousands of plants will transform Victoria Square into an urban oasis, which will host free events, workshops and performances including live music, dance, spoken word and drag.

This supernatural wonderland uncovers the origin stories of the plants we know so well – daisies, pansies, apple trees, roses – in fact these, and most of the plants we see in our gardens are not from the UK. They tell the story of journeys, movement, dispersal, and new roots.

PoliNations is a celebration of colour, beauty, and of natural diversity. Explore, enjoy and be your true unique self. You can experience music from around the world, an incredible light show each evening, and a grand finale like no other where the tree’s canopies will burst into a joyful cloud of confetti and colour. 

This is Carnival and Holi combined in one brilliant, messy, playful party and everyone is invited.

PoliNations is created and produced by the Bristol based arts organisation Trigger, and a collective of creatives and experts in horticulture, arts, science, and architecture.
