Curlew Country Sculpture & Song, 9th July, 8.30pm at Norbury
Wednesday June 22nd, 2016 | Stephanie
The Curlew Country Arts Project comes to a close on the evening of Saturday 9th July with a lantern parade, poems, sculpture and song. This is the culmination of a series of public workshops to celebrate the local curlew population.
The Curlew Country Choir will perform a number of especially composed songs, written by poet Karen Lloyd, and put to music by composer, Mary Keith. Local sculptor, Bill Sample, will lead a curlew lantern parade and imagery by acclaimed photographer Ben Osborne will celebrate Curlew Country activities over the last couple of months.
Curlew Country was inspired by Mary Colwell-Hector and her 500 mile Curlew Walk to raise awareness of the drastic decline in curlews. Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/curlewcountry/.
