Floating Forest in east London on canalas and rivers © Mary MullanFloating Forest – a fleet of foliage-inspired boats – has recently been making its way around the canals and rivers of London’s East End. So far these 2 floating vesslels – the mounds of grass and wood named RootLounge and BoweredGlade – have visited Shoreditch Festival and Hackney WickED, and will drift to Folly for a Flyover café, cinema and activity space this weekend. The boats are an interactive odyssey; once on board, guests are invited to proffer a question to The Floating Forest Oracle and make a wish. Put cynicism aside and go with the flow.
