So we went today, and I rejoined with a home ed membership (£39 for a family, week day term times only, which suits us as I find weekends a bit busy). The kids were a bit reluctant to come but I was totally convinced they would *love* Colourscape. I wasn't wrong!
It's wonderful. The tunnels are red, blue, green. The red and the green are very intense, the blue is a real visual rest. The staff give you a loose primary colour vest to wear, so that you become part of the installation - the colours change as you walk through the different segments. In one section there were two musicians making all sorts of sounds with keyboards, pipes, a squeaky toy, percussion, voice. The sounds echo through the structure.
The kids liked hiding and finding each other again, and just being there. It was a such a sensory experience.
I chatted with one of the staff and she said that they have a much larger one that comes to Clapham Common for a week-long festival in September. It's 8 times as big! It's open at the weekend, or weekdays for prearranged school visits. I've emailed to see if I can arrange a home ed trip.
I'm so glad we went, and now we have NT membership again I can plan a trip to Cliveden's big slide!
