Colourscape has been part of our imaginative Summer landscape for the past two seasons and we are delighted to welcome back the festival. The inflatable Moonorooni that fills the Museum's front lawn has been so successful because it offers a unique colour drenching experience that is a sensory delight for all ages. Don't miss the opportunity to soak up some pure colour this summer.
Presented by Eye Music Trust, Colourscape will feature a programme of contemporary music each weekend.
