During the darkest months of the year, National portfolio organisation Meadow Arts and the National Trust will present In Another Light, an unusual contemporary art programme at Herefordshire’s Croft Castle.  

Croft Castle in Yarpole, Herefordshire, is a formidable stone manor house set in an exceptional landscape, which holds the memory of 3,000 years of British history.

From November 2014 to March 2015, the castle and its grounds will play host In Another Light, a programme of contemporary art showcasing new work by artist David Ogle, winner of the 2012 Royal Society of British Sculptors Sculpture Shock prize.

As the sun sets over Croft Castle, large-scale immersive sculptural light pieces created by Ogle will be seen throughout the castle, surrounding park and woodlands.

During the upcoming winter months, the castle and grounds will open for special weekend evening viewings alongside a programme of live art and performance events for audiences to take part in.

“Meadow Arts has a reputation for commissioning exhibitions that are out of the ordinary and In Another Light promises to be just that,” said Dawn Ashman, Director (Interim), Arts Council England.

“It will give people the unique opportunity to see new artworks by an up-and-coming, award-winning artist, as well as the chance to explore the hidden dimensions of one of Herefordshire’s historic landmarks.”
