About this event

A walk around some of the old and decaying venerable trees at Croft Castle led by artist Richard Gilbert, poet Sara-Jane Arbury and photographer Paul Ligas.
Richard Gilbert: An artist passionate about capturing landscapes. His practice is based around painting, watercolour, and drawing. Notable exhibitions include ‘Common Ground’ and ‘Round the Year from Stonewall Hill.’
Sara-Jane Arbury: An award-winning writer, performer, poet and educator. Collaborated with organisations including the BBC and National Literacy Trust.

This is a curated walk looking at ancient trees and associated artworks at Croft Castle which constitute the newly established 'Ghost Tree Walk', a collaborative art project creating artwork in the landscape featured on seven 'ghost trees' with an exhibition in the Stables. The three guides will talk about the project genesis, read the poems and talk about their artistic responses.

PLEASE NOTE - the ticket for the guided walk does not include entry to Croft Castle, which, for non-members of the National Trust, is £14.
