Hendrick's Gin's 2 Day Pop-up at the RHS's Urban Garden Show in Pimlico

For two days Hendrick's Gin will be conducting research on (very willing) volunteers at the Royal Horticulture Society's Summer Urban Gardening Show in Vincent Square, near Pimlico.  The Perilous Laboratory for the Absorbent of Natural Teachings (P.L.A.N.T.) will take you through a game where you try to get music our of a cucumber, and if you do you will be rewarded with a Hendrick's and Tonic.  It's open on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th July, 12 noon to 9pm only - and it's free!

"Hendrick’s Gin requires human volunteers to take part in a genuine and most unusual scientific experiment in an attempt to make harmonious music through cucumber collaboration and cocktail consumption.
Step forward those with a strong head for science and a penchant for Hendrick’s, come visit the Perilous Laboratory for the Absorbent of Natural Teachings (P.L.A.N.T.) at the RHS Summer Urban Gardening Show in London, 12th – 13th July.
At the Hendrick’s Perilous Laboratory (P.L.A.N.T.), scientists have investigated how to invigorate human connection with the natural world through a series of experiments. The noble cucumber is one of the most mysterious yet delectable infusions in Hendrick's Gin and through science, P.LA.N.T. aims to unearth the green fruit’s wondrous secrets. Are they sentient beings? What knowledge can humanoids garner from these wise vessels?
Individuals who attend P.L.A.N.T. will be greeted by Hendrick’s Laboratorians, who will lead the experiment to make music through collaborating with a set of cucumbers which are rigged up a piece of software that when triggered creates a different sound and style. The sounds are programmed and designed in such a way that when all played together – a verdant and cacophonic composition worthy only of the ears of the curious is created.  If successful in making a peculiar composition, folk will be rewarded with a Hendrick’s and Tonic."
