Croft Castle & Parkland will show light based artworks

In Another Light

  • 1 November 2014 — 21 March 2015

Open Saturday evenings 5-8pm

During the darkest months of the year, Meadow Arts and the National Trust present 'In Another Light', an unusual contemporary art programme at Croft Castle, Herefordshire. Croft is a formidable stone manor house set in an exceptional landscape, which holds the memory of 3,000 years of British history.

With new immersive, sculptural light pieces from the exciting young artist David Ogle, and a light projection made at Croft Castle by Rebecca Farkas, In Another Light will unfold, around the castle and its gardens.

Even in the cold light of day, Croft Castle and the surrounding landscape are mesmerising: as night falls and familiar landmarks recede, Croft reveals more hidden depths. Significantly, the exhibition and supporting events are programmed following the lunar calendar and major pagan festivals.

Offering a rare chance to experience Croft at its most atmospheric, the Castle grounds will open for special Saturday evening viewings, with a programme of live art and performance events.

This is an outdoor event, please bring a torch and stay within the lit areas. In bad weather telephone 01568 782120 before making your journey.
