Get inspired by the past – HODs at Cresswell

17 September 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Get inspired by Cresswell Pele Tower and Garden then produce and share your own bit of creativity with others.

Join our Artists in Residence at our inspirational 14th-century building. Immerse yourself in the history, stories, and artifacts in the pele tower or the associated walled garden, both of which have been rescued from dereliction and neglect.

See what is awoken within you and explore ways to capture and share that in a creative fashion, using whatever medium seems most appropriate.

It may be a poem, photographs, drawings, spoken word, video, or even a folk tale. Perhaps the White Lady may guide your hand? Or the stories of Crusader Knights? The colourful flowers in our Secret Garden or its contemplative seclusion.

There will be re-enactors on hand in period costumes, and stories of the border raiders known as REIVERS, whose clan names remain in celebrities such as Bobby Charlton, Neil Armstrong and Bobby Robson.

Above all else, come and enjoy this unique part of local cultural history.

No booking required

Please use public car parking along the seafront (north and south) and enjoy the short walk to the Pele Tower. We regret dogs are allowed on the upper floors for H&S reasons
