5pm

£10.50 for adults

Join us for an evening that celebrates rural culture, in the magnificent setting of The Bowes Museum. Finnish artist Henna Asikainen will be completing a temporary art installation in the grounds, aided by a group of refugees based in Newcastle. A Keynote talk by writer and Fun Palaces director Stella Duffy OBE will kickstart a sequence of entertaining talks about the art, poetry, farming, and philosophy of landscape. Grab a bite and enjoy a drink at the museum café and don’t miss the rare chance to catch the setting sun from the Museum’s amazing top-floor library. Rounded off with an opportunity to see Shoes: Pleasure & Pain, explore the rest of the Museum and dancing to the music of refugee-band Crossings, this will be a night where many friendships and memories are formed.
