Bank Holiday VE Day

Join us on Bank Holiday, on the 75th anniversary of VE Day, to celebrate peace and honour those who fought for us.

During the war Compton Verney was used as a site for smokescreen testing, so as part of the day we will be restaging Turner Prize-nominated artist, Simon Patterson’s spectacular Landskip installation performance, first commissioned for Compton Verney in 2000. The magnificent explosions of colour will be detonated across the park throughout the day.

Keep an eye on the website for the full timetable.
