Colourscape is celebrating its 26th birthday at 2015's event on Clapham Common. Visitors to its colourful tunnels will experience something similar to being swallowed by a scene from 'Yellow Submarine'. Guests must choose a coloured cape before venturing into the enormous labyrinth to explore nearly an acre of space while daylight casts a rainbow glow through its walls.
Weekends see the addition of unusual musical performances, which really tip the experience into magical territory. This year the music begins with the 30 strong New London Chamber Choir (Saturday September 12th at 1pm-5pm) with Sunday's performance coming from a unique mix of poets and singers whose voices will be processed and manipulated by musical computer-wizards (Sunday September 13 1pm-5pm). The following week sees a focus on Women's Voices (Saturday September 19th, 1pm-5pm) and the festival finishes with 'Imagined Cities', Colourscapes new commission in which an accordionist, dancers and a 40 voice choir will spin a world of imaginary landscapes.
Naturally children will have a whale of a time, and weekdays are devoted mainly to colour and music workshops for schools, with public access only available between noon and 1pm.
