Events Weekend: 30 June & 1 July


28 Jun 2012

On Saturday 30 June, the Biennial hosts an AIR Salon in partnership with a-n magazine, with artists, curators and arts professionals taking time out to discuss the intricacies of site-specific commissioning and programming. If you're interested in attending, please contact airevents@a-n.co.uk.

On Sunday 1 July, the Biennial curators will take a tour of the site with visitors and aviation historian Jim Rait will lead a tour of the Parkland, focussing on its legacy of experimental and military flight. The estate's last Lord Egerton was a flying enthusiast and had his own airstrip on the site. During World War II, nearly 400,000 descents were made at Tatton by troops preparing for deployment into occupied Europe, under the direction of what would become No 1 Parachute School.
