First There Is A Mountain
Sunday 20 October 2019
8.30am to 11.30am
This year the National Trust is participating in Katie Paterson’s national artwork ‘First there is a Mountain’ including right here at Brancaster Beach on Sunday 20 October 2019 and you’re invited to take part.
The artwork will tour 25 high profile coastal art venues around the UK, who will each stage a sand pail building event on their local beach. This artwork will be at Brancaster Beach on 20 October and you are invited to help sculpt Brancaster Beach into hundreds of mountains of sand to form micro-geologies. Slow down and consider the interconnectedness of the world, from shifting coastlines across millennia, to our own eroding coastline.
Fifty sets of buckets and spades will be available to use on the day. The ‘buckets’ are specially created hollow scale models of five of the world’s most famous mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (North America), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe), and Uluru (Oceania).
Pails will be available on a first-come, first-served basis but to avoid disappointment a limited number will be available to book in advance.
Price: This is a free event. Car parking charges apply; £3 for two hours or £6 all day including National Trust members.
Location: Brancaster Beach, Beach Road, Brancaster, Norfolk, PE31 8AX
