100 Stars is a new light and sound installation in The Threshing Barn, Green Croft On The Wall created by Amanda Drago, featuring star lanterns made by the young people of Gilsland and Haltwhistle Youth Clubs brought to life by a new sound piece by Kit Haigh. The installation reflects on Winter Solstice and a welcome return to light.
The barn is located off Hadrian's Wall National Trail and the installation will be open during the Christmas and New Year break so why not include us in a walk or exploration on the Northumberland / Cumbria border with many great walks on our doorstop.
We will have our pop up cafe open and to celebrate Amanda's Swedish heritage we will be encouraging you to celebrate in Fika (A Swedish custom meaning making time for friends and family to share a cup of coffee (or tea) and cake) with Swedish cinnamon buns and gingerbread on offer.
We have limited parking, if you have access issues please ring ahead to reserve a place. The nearest public car parks are Thirlwall View (15 minute walk) and Gilsland Village Primary School
(20 minute walk)
Other places to visit close by: Roman Army Museum (1 miles), Birdoswald Roman Fort (2.5 miles)
Art in the Barn is an annual programme of events connecting visitors walking Hadrian’s Walll with the landscape and history of the area through artistic interventions.
