All tickets will be just five pounds. You can book one (or several) via the Stan's Cafe Shop

Earls Hill, Pontesford, SY5 0UH 21st - 23rd July, 2017

An Iron Age fort is reoccupied by visitors from a post-silicon age.

Two worlds overlap on this dramatic location high in the Shropshire Hills. Four strangers from a far future time are briefly visible to us and us to them. They have arrived with their fires, shelter and flag. They are living their lives, cooking and sleeping on this ancient site.

Visitors are welcome to come and join the strangers and appreciate this spectacular place with its amazing views. The strangers have questions, food and drink to share, objects to trade, stories to tell. Their only time is with the sun and the stars, they give us a chance to escape our time.

Visitors are welcome to stay overnight on the Friday and Saturday nights subject to prior booking.

Commissioned by Heartland, a collaboration between:
Arts Alive, The National Trust (Trust New Art), Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Corndon and Stiperstones Landscape Partnership Project and Ben Osborne.
