Spreading itself across the city and into North Yorkshire towns, the York Colourscape Festival is a marvel of colour and light that is enjoyed by people of all ages. In 2005 the festival took in seven new locations, including Clifford’s Tower, Rowntree Park, The Eye of York, and Coppergate, where visitors could explore a magical world of colour and light.
The 2006 Colourscape Festival arrives in York in late July and runs for a seven days. The Colourscape exhibition has a walk-in network of coloured chambers that are linked by a series of openings that form an amazing light and space extravaganza.
Visitors to the Colourscape Festival are given cloaks of primary colours to wear, which change in colour as they move through the chambers to make you feel like you’re part of a rainbow. People are able to walk freely through the chambers at their own pace and in any direction they choose so they can savour the experience.
Along with the chambers that are open to all, a number of workshops are held throughout the week during which Colourscape artists lead and encourage you to discover more about light and colour. For more information about the York Colourscape Festival call 07905 974922.
