Supported by a playlist and found sound from musician SL Walkinshaw, this event is part of a series celebrating the National Trust’s annual Festival of Blossom and the uplifting sight of spring.

The artists will be joined by the choral sounds of Dawn Chorus at the historic Quarry Bank, one of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites.

Blossomise is brought to you in collaboration with the National Trust and is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
