Navigable by boat or on foot, the Mid-Worcestershire Ring is an interconnecting circle of waterways which form a unique tourist destination. The Ring is a major new arts programme that is taking place between March and September 2018 celebrating the historic 21-mile Worcestershire circular canal that flows through the urban and rural landscapes of Worcester and Droitwich.
The Weorgoran Pavilion pops-up in Worcester this summer, hosting a vibrant programme of literature, music, dance and workshops led by local artists.
The stage’s vibrant design is the creation of NEON, a design studio that works between the disciplines of art and architecture. The sculptural pavilion takes its inspiration from the Saxon origins of the name Worcester and its ancient translation, “the people of the winding river”.
The Weorgoran Pavilion reflects the light of its riverine surroundings in combination with a site-specific soundscape, Shire Skies, by acclaimed Ledbury-born musician and beatboxer Dave Crow
