Singing tree and music trail
Songs for Shakespeare
23 March - 31 December 2013
Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens
We have some new attractions for our visitors this year with a musical theme.
Walk up to our magical tree and it will sing to you! A series of sensors detect your presence triggering a soundscape of amazing words and melody inspired by Shakespearian verse. This project has been made possible thanks to funding from the Happy Museum Project.
Take a musical journey through our Woodland Walk with Cobweb, Moth and Mustardseed; a specially commissioned piece by Peter Knight dedicated to Shakespeare (headphones provided for a small, refundable deposit). Find out more about Peter Knight, renowned violinist, folk legend of Steeleye Span and founder of Gigspanner, at his official website.
Also look out for our giant willow sculptures.
Normal opening times and admission prices apply.
