Set against the verdant backdrop of the undiscovered treasure, Happy Valley garden in Stenness, this is a brand new commission for this year's Festival, specially created in the course of the last year and with the collaboration of the ensemble musicians.    Karen Tweed writes:  'Orkney’s location has attracted a myriad of visitors for centuries. Some return annually; some stay a-while; some leave swiftly; some settle here. Visitors here range from animal, plant, mineral and historically the humankind have been everything from seafarers, invaders, prisoners of war, tourists, merchants, explorers, those looking for life-changes, families and monks. And more...........This last year has transformed the simple concept of ‘visiting’ into a luxury, never again to be taken for granted, while the impact of a visitor or being visited can hold both joyous and sinister connotations. 

This is an outdoor seated event so please check the forecast before you come and dress appropriately.  There is strictly no parking at Happy valley so please park at Stenness Community School and we will provide a free shuttle bus along the road to Happy Valley.
