2024 is the 250th anniversary of Priestley’s discovery of oxygen – the breath of life on earth.  

This significant anniversary inspires Fiori to create four programmes built around the ancient elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water, as we reflect on the vital necessity of sustaining our beautiful world.
