Mark Linnane: Wind Garden
“I’m delighted that Big House has its very own miniature wind farm – one that I think will generate smiles if not energy!”
– Festival Director.
The grounds at Castletown gets a splash of colour and movement with this magical installation. Wind Garden is a field planted with 500 childrens’ windmills. Each windmill forms part of a sculptural picture, in a carefully designed landscape that brings a unique mix of colour, sound and movement to the gardens at BIG HOUSE.
Rear Lawn. All Day. Every Day.
