The Visited Orchard

A 'harvesting' of messages

Where stories will be told and places celebrated.

Join artist Francesca Millican-Slater as she draws to a close her summer project at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Pull up a deckchair and listen as she brings to life the stories of visitors from the past. Harvest the stories in The Visited Orchard and share your own during this interactive performance. 

This summer visitors were invited to follow artist Francesca Millican-Slater's unique treasure hunt around the 9-acre site, to discover hidden nooks and crannies and finding individual objects that telling them stories of who has been here before.

Were you one of these visitors who made your own journey through the site, and perhaps wrote your story on an ornamental apple for others to read?
