A nature trail like none other, a combination of the natural world and the world of the arts

One for the Rook – 8-12 & 22-26 September 2021

Bergh Apton will be hosting a nature trail based arts event in September which looks really interesting, and just round the corner from us. It’d be well worth a visit, you need a ticket to attend and it’s sure to be popular based on past events, so make sure you plan ahead and get a ticket early.

One of the most unique aspects is you need to bring a smartphone with a QR reader, to be able to interact with the experiences, music, readings, and puzzle.

It’s about 1.5 miles, over rough and muddy ground, so you’ll need appropriate footwear.

From their promotional material:

One for the Rook has been three years in the planning and our aim is that it will work even should limited COVID restrictions be in place.

The Trail will provide opportunities to “Stop, Look and Listen” not only to the world around us of which we are but a part, but also to words and music – creative responses to our “neighbours” who live alongside.

We have been assisted by the renowned story-teller Hugh Lupton, the music composer, Mary Lovett, the Land Artist, Liz McGowan and with creative assistance and direction from Charlotte Arculus.

All this inspired by the beautiful books of Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris such as “Lost Words” and “Lost Spells”.

Bergh Apton Arts is a not-for-profit Trust that has, since 1997, staged successful events such as Sculpture Trails and Plays.
