Guest Event – Whispering Woods

October 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Let your heart soar amongst the mighty cathedral of the forest, with an evening of breathtaking aerial dance and euphoric choral performance from Whispering Woods and the Murmuration Choir.

Wrap up with a warm drink and watch aerialists and acrobats move amongst the branches against the soundtrack of Bristol’s 25 voiced, contemporary choir performing 8-part vocal harmony, soundscape, effects and percussion.

A breathtaking, immersive piece for all ages, staged in an arboretum reclaimed from abandonment, The Shape of Belonging holds a space to disconnect from the digital and to listen deeply to the earth, to each other and to ourselves.

Evening performances will take place on Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October with an additional 3pm relaxed matinee on Sunday.

Doors: 7:00 PM
Show start: 7:00 PM
Show length: TBC

“She dreamed of the show for weeks”, father of a young audience member.

What we love about The Shape of Belonging:

Song, fire and tree dancing! Go if you like aerial circus, harmonies, hot chocolate and wrapping up with your family and friends for adventures in the woods.

This event is organised and run by Whispering Woods. Please direct all enquiries to them via this website.

Book tickets here.
