The Dreamer Is Still Asleep at Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire 

Explore the garden surrounding the quirky Tudor manor house at Little Moreton Hall until 29 October and discover a sound and aromatic installation by artist and composer Scanner, which explores the transcendent state between sleeping and waking, with sounds that would once have filled the hall. Visitors can expect a sonic experience of blurry dreamfulness, where voices, music, footsteps and glasses clinking together merge to create a musical ambiance.
