Saturday/Sunday July 6/7th

Colourscape returns to the Winchester Hat Fair

A weekend of free-flowing music in our Moonorooni Colourscape structure will make a great impact at Britain's longest running festival of Outdoor Arts taking place across the historic city of Winchester.

Composer/musicians Ansuman Biswas, Michael Ormiston and Sylvia Hallett perform throughout the day.

Ansuman Biswas plays a huge variety of percussion specialising in instruments from Asia

Michael Ormiston is a top expert on Mongolian Overtone Singing and a wide range of unusual instruments from the Far East.

Sylvia Hallett performs on unusual instruments including bicycle wheels, shells, accordian, hurdy-gurdy.

Around the festival sites we present on Saturday Bubble events. A dancer in a large transparent Sphere performs with roving musician.

And on Sunday we present Playing the Wind. Tubes of Colour play in the sky.
