Under the Wild Wood Tree

Fully Booked

A twilight, nature-themed woodland walk in which Same Sky's light sculptures and live choral music from Brighton Festival Chorus transform Stanmer Woods

As dusk draws in, follow a lantern-lit trail through a dreamlike realm in which music and sculpture transform Stanmer Woods into a charmed sensory experience. With soundscapes murmuring from the trees and Same Sky's light sculptures glowing in the gloaming, the woods take on a special enchantment, enhanced at two points along the way by Brighton Festival Chorus performing choral works of translucent beauty and hypnotic power: Eric Whitacre’s Sleep and Frank Ticheli’s Earth Song.

This nature-themed woodland walk is a gentle immersion into the half-world between day and night: a delightful adventure enlivened by luminous encounters and evocative sounds.


This is an outdoor promenade performance along woodland trails with low light levels. The ground is uneven, with some uphill track and sloping sections and may be muddy. Please dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear and avoid bringing pushchairs. The event will go ahead in all weathers unless deemed unsafe to do so.

As the terrain is challenging we would recommend an all-terrain type wheelchair. If you are a wheelchair users and would like more information about the route please contact our access team.

The performance takes place on a circular route of 1.5 km from (and returning to) the welcome point. The welcome point is a 350m uphill walk from the car park at Stanmer Park entrance.

To discuss any access requirements please call our access team on 01273 261541/525 or email
