Venture to Little Moreton Hall, near Congleton, Cheshire this summer where Wild Rumpus will be taking visitors on a ‘Sleep Walk’, a self-led trail of curious installations exploring how we used to sleep in early modern England. Collect a map and adventure through a night’s sleep, Tudor style. Expect to encounter sleeping draughts, nightmare creatures, segmented sleep, and wake up to a glorious sunrise. The Sleep Walk will be running from May-September.
Popping up at Little Moreton thoughout the summer, and at other locations across the north including the RHS Tatton Flower Show (19 – 23 July) and Just So Festival (18 – 20 August), will be the Dream Library. Come inside and share your dreams with us, you can write them down to be filed away and explore the archives to find out what other people have been dreaming about.
The Sleep Walk and Dream Library are part of ‘How we used to sleep’ – a collaborative project between the University of Manchester and The National Trust’s Little Moreton Hall – funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
