Experience Blossomise – a live music and poetry performance by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage and the band LYR.

Supported by a playlist and found sound from musician SL Walkinshaw and special contributions by the local community, this event is part of a series celebrating the National Trust’s annual Festival of Blossom.

The artists will be joined by Choir Noir at the historic Market Hall in Plymouth, a world-class space for immersive technology. Lose yourself in the beauty of spring when you head to the immersive dome, where a new blossom bathing experience with 360-degree visuals awaits you.

Please note this event is recommended for children over 12 years of age. Any children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Blossomise is brought to you in collaboration with Green Communities (Plymouth City Council) and is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
