The Metal Peterborough Harvest Festival (http://www.metalculture.com/about-us/peterborough/) commission forms part of a curated strand to accompany the inaugural UK large-scale outdoor meal by Studio Orta (http://www.studio-orta.com/en/artworks/serie/23/70-x-7-The-Meal) and their '70 x 7 The Meal' series:
'The Harvest celebration weekend will take place in the historic Cathedral Square in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. At its centre will be a dinner for 500 people and a ritual procession of local bakers, gardeners, farmers, dancers, and musicians giving thanks to the land. Offerings will be made to celebrate the festival through the sharing of food, conversation and song. A farmers market will recreate the tradition that ran in the Square from the 12th century through to the 1960s. A mass evening ceilidh and 100 Morris dancers will welcome in the Harvest Moon. This will be a publicly engaging weekend of art that reinvigorates and transforms the ancestral ritual of Harvest'
