Coming soon: Kate Slater Farne Flock

Tuesday 18th June comments: In little over two weeks time, the Farne Islands will be hosting something very special and very different. Illustrator Kate Slater will be filling the rafters of St.Cuthbert’s Chapel with life size collaged seabirds – in fact all the species which breed on the islands!

The birds (up to 600 in total) will be suspended from the ceiling of the chapel as part of a major exhibition which will be open to the public from 30th June-31st October (normal visiting hours will apply). We hope it will add an extra dimension to a visit to the islands and it really will catch the wow-factor.

For latest news of the exciting project you can take a look at Kate’s blog: http://kateslaterillustration.wordpress.com/

As part of this work, we have been getting a helping hand from National Trust conservators from Lindisfarne Castle and Nunnington Hall, to help clean and prepare the Chapel, ready for the exhibition. I can guarantee one thing; it’s going to be well worth a look, so visit the islands to find out more.
