Explore all that Berrington has to offer this summer
At Berrington we have a huge range of new artworks, trails and games to take part in, stories to find and acres of parkland to discover. Why not come along and take a look?
Look! Look! Look! By Heather and Ivan Morison
Daily from Saturday 10 June, 10am to 5pm
Internationally renowned artists Heather and Ivan Morison have been inspired by Berrington’s Georgian origins and their extravagant and outrageous culture. The Georgian’s were notorious for their decadent fashion and their secretive nature. From lovers having secret meetings in their garden pavilions or taking tea in the garden to pineapple merchants gathering their stock for the upcoming balls; there are so many playful elements of eighteenth century culture that are easily forgotten. The Morison’s have combined these parts of traditional historic gentry life to create Berrington’s very own ‘pineapple’inspired pavilion. This pavilion is titled ‘Look! Look! Look!’ and can be enjoyed in the orchard of the walled garden.
The Pavilion is designed to open out and host a series of summer time events, from kite building to evenings of ‘The art of Georgian gambling’. So why not come and explore this slice of Georgian culture?
Look! Look! Look! Launch, Saturday 10 June 10am to 5pm
Come back in June and meet the artists Heather and Ivan Morison as they talk about their pavilion. This Georgian eye catcher is brought to life throughout the day with music from Eboracum Baroque, and a specialist talk at 2pm by artist and co-creator of the pavilion Heather Peake and Kate Felus, leading garden historian and author of ‘The Secret Life of the Georgian garden’, which greatly inspired the creation of the pavilion. Visit the tea-room for some refreshments as you relax inside the garden pavilion and enjoy the spectacle.
The event is free, but normal admission charges apply.
