A celebration in music, poetry and art takes place at Woodlands Organic Farm at Kirton on Sunday (2pm).

The Cello Company, potter and ceramicist Yozo Hirayama, writer Christopher Osborn and actor Raymond Platt are sharing an afternoon of music, poetry and art with relevance to land and sea. For instance, Yozo’s installation, One Thousand Pots, One Thousand Thoughts, is a response to the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

Farmer Andrew Dennis says: “Some while ago I began a dialogue with Yozo Hirayama about exhibiting his strikingly beautiful installation at Woodlands Farm. It seemed especially relevant to me, given rising sea levels along the east coast and the farm’s close position to the sea. From this the idea of this information celebration of land and sea was born.”

The celebration will consist of a concert of cello music (Bach, Howard Goodall and Gavin Bryers), poetry readings and the art installation.

Entry £5 on the door – tea and pastries are available.
