The performances

2pm, Saturday 16 July & Sunday 17 July
National Trust Croome, Worcestershire, WR8 9DW

Dancefest has been working in partnership with the National Trust at Croome to produce Vista, a community dance performance that brings to life the landscape created by 'Capability' Brown, involving 100 dancers of all ages.

The performances start at 2pm on Croome’s Church Hill. Visitors will be given a 'dance walk' map (which you can also download here) and are then free to travel to different performances along the walk; around the lakeside and its many temples, and to follies such as the Island Pavilion, the Temple Greenhouse and the Rotunda.

The performance is included in the entry fee to Croome and so free for National Trust members.

The performances are accessible to wheelchair users and people with limited mobility but may involve a slightly different route. Here's a downoadable accessibility map for Croome. Please contact Croome if you have any access questions.

A first glimpse of Vista...

This film was created as part of an intensive three-day project for creative, experienced dancers, inspired by Croome's Panorama Tower.

Grayson Perry's tapestries, 'The Vanity of Small Differences' are also at Croome in July you may like to visit those too.

Vista playlists

These relate to different areas of Croome, where you may catch moments of movement and stillness between performances. You might like to listen to these through headphones on your phone or tablet as you walk around the parkland.
