During a rare moment for the Mansion House when it was empty for updating and restoration, Vespertine invited all to explore and experience a variety of performances and installations.
From the Dadaist choir Juxtavoices to Howlround's atmospheric tape-looped installation, McWatt's accordion and double base duet and Rhianna Mayhew's stunning lightboxes, visitors were drawn around the building before making their way to the next stop on Walmgate.
Artist collective Reet So's after party at Walmgate Ale House took things to newly surreal levels with foil-face portraits and other table based games. All games were accompanied by live performances from X-Ray Cat Trio, VJ mash-ups by Tim Inneaux and spoken word by Luke Drozd.
"Most probably the only time I will experience anything like this in my life"
"Fantastic event and great to be in such historic places experiences contemporary art and music. Great mixture of high quality and a really good laugh."
