During summer 2021 an extraordinary experience of colour and light lands again on the Waddesdon lawns. A specially-designed Colourscape with long sensational views will be installed on the Aviary glade.Immerse yourself in an endless labyrinth of intense light, colour, space and music in 56 interlinked chambers.

By popular demand we bring Colourscape back to Waddesdon with a structure created specially to exactly fit the Aviary glade.  Long views of intense colour and light stretch out – the longest view ever created in Colourscape will appear in the ‘Aviary Colourscape’. Enter a new world where you can explore intense light, colour and space in 56 interlinked chambers and encounter unusual musical experiences during your journey.

Each day there will be different music and dance performances – resident musician, Michael Ormiston creates family-friendly free-flowing workshops for all on weekdays and at weekends we present Hurdy-Gurdy, panpipes, dance, flutes from around the world and a spectacular theatre-piece with dance and costumes.

Returning to Waddesdon for its seventh year, Colourscape is for visitors of all ages and promises an experience you will not forget.

Please note: for safety reasons in adverse weather we may have to close Colourscape at short notice.

Special additional safety is being added for Covid-safety. Colourscape is very spacious inside and there will always be enough space for more than two metres social-distancing. We estimate that the fresh air circulating is replaced about every 15 minutes. Depending on Government guidelines we may ask you to wear a mask when inside.
