Sunshine on the Fallen Tree

See Pif Paf's Sunshine on the Fallen Tree at Tyntesfield

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Pif Paf’s Sunshine on the Fallen Tree is an immersive sound and light sculpture, made from Ash trees felled due to Ash Dieback, traditionally steam bent and set with re-usable innovative technology.

Walk through its branches and be seated in the canopy, bath in its flickering light as a sound composition takes you through movements of a requiem and sonic memories of the tree, inviting you to reflect on the decline of the Ash Tree and the energy and optimism we need to fill the spaces as we lose so many species to climate change.

The sound composition was created by Eleanor Hooper and Kate Griffin, and together makes a very moving 12-minute experience.
