Standon Calling 2009

UPDATE: Read the full portfolio entry on Standon Calling 2009 here.


The Heritage Arts Company will return to Standon Calling for another weekend of creating experiential environments for festival goers to explore.

Focusing on space race mystery and the story of Galileo Galilei’s rebellious defiance of the Catholic Church, confirming heliocentricity, the Heritage Arts Company will place the heliocentre into Standon. It will be a place of wonder where worlds from the outer reaches and the past come to life for festival goers’ delights.
