aroundNorth tour March 4, 2015

Posted by robert jarvis in ..


To celebrate the official launch of the aroundNorth permanent installation at Armagh Observatory a version of the work will tour to a number of locations in Northern Ireland.  It will begin on the shores of Lough Neagh, at Oxford Island, which was last year launched as the first Dark Sky site in Northern Ireland, and then tour to the top of Divis & the Black Mountain National Trust Park, before heading to Armagh for a couple of performances.  The installation will also travel to Colin Allotments in West Belfast before travelling to Derry for a special performance to coincide with the deep partial eclipse of the Sun on the morning of Friday 20th March 2015.  There will then be an evening performance in the sports grounds at St Cecila’s College before the final event at the spectacular Beaghmore Stones complex, near Cookstown in County Tyrone.  Details below (all events are free):
