Families in the Forest - Spring 2022

About

Families in the Forest is an opportunity for families to explore the Orleans House grounds through a series of encounters with inhabitants past and present. Walking through the grounds we encounter ancient trees, flowers, bats, moles, squirrels, even an antelope. Each plant and creature offers an invitation to us to consider their experience in the space by changing our own. Young bats seeing for the first time invite us to close our eyes and feel the surroundings with our hands, our fingers, our palms, to tread the ground, to summon colours into our imaginations, and when we open our eyes imagine we are emerging from a cave to encounter colour for the first time in our lives. Each inhabitant will guide our interactions with the space and help us to reconsider our own role in the natural world by better understanding theirs. Please book full price tickets for adults and concession tickets for children so we can ensure as many people can enjoy the experience as possible!
