Ben & Scott: ‘To be sat here on this bench after a week in Ibiza makes everything feel better again.’

Fozia & baby: ‘Bringing the outdoors inside was a wonderful idea: bench as a platform for expression; a thing for social history.’

Jonathan: ‘An unusual unexpected diversion amid the bustle of the Lock – a few moments’ tranquility to get some thoughts.’

Mami: ‘Hi!’

0908090025

Barbara: ‘Drinking a refreshing coconut milk – first experienced in London some 3 years ago. Can’t get it at home in Derbyshire.’

David: ‘This reminds me of Edward Albee’s play ‘Zoo Story’ about a man sitting on a bench alone in Central Park. He is joined by a stranger and the play follows the story of what happened next. I acted and directed this extraordinary piece in 1971. Benches forever!’

Apolonia, who played the didgeridoo all afternoon: ‘I came back today to just try and get away from the confines of my bedroom.  I learnt the didge after falling in love with it at Glastonbury, but it took 9 months to teach myself.’
