An unmissable night-time performance in collaboration with 14 – 18 NOW

As night falls in no-mans-land a battlefront is drawn between the two lines. Disorientated, you suddenly find yourself immersed within an open-air collage of sound, light, pyrotechnics and performance. Railing against the futility of the Great War and the madness of the battlefield, Furious Folly challenges the inhumanity and senselessness of conflicts past and present.

The audience is invited to gather from 7pm at  for a prompt 7.30pm start to the performance when they will be guided into to the performance arena.

There is an easier route around the performance site. If you have limited mobility, staff can assist you. Contact the Information Point on-site when you arrive.

Tickets are available to buy on-site at the Information Point, please bring cash. Parental discretion is advised for under 14s, and no under 16s will be permitted without an accompanying adult.
