Compton Verney has joined forces with Eye Music Trust to create an innovative outdoor event, with performances designed for the 'new normal' of social distancing.

Music Of Spheres - Story Of Water will take place at the Warwickshire venue on Sunday 23 August and will feature three performances - 12noon, 3pm and 6pm.

Each show will start with dancers and musicians within land-based spheres moving around the audience. The middle part of the show features performances on unusual and sculptural instruments from around the world, with musicians playing under a large sculptural canopy.

Each show will end with a giant sphere - the size of a four-storey building - being launched into the lake. The sphere will have an aerial dancer inside, who will be spinning and spiralling on silks suspended from the centre.

Tickets prices are as follows: non-members, £12; access-all-areas members £7; local pass holders, £10; children five to 15 years of age, £4. Under fives are admitted free.

Compton Verney's house and galleries will be closed on the day of the performance, but the venue's welcome centre, toilets, gift shop and refreshments will remain open.
