An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until 29th August 2018
Colourscape is a unique experience of the most intense colours you can imagine. Put on a coloured cape and step into a new world where there are no horizons just soft curved edges and intense colour and light. Over 25 interlinked coloured chambers invited visitors to explore a unique labyrinth of colour and space; turn a corner and another fabulous view opens up. Become lost in colour and space and explore until you discover live musicians and dancers leading the public on a journey of music and colour.
Each day there will be different programmes of music and performances – this is a ten-day arts festival that takes place within a sculpture.
