Flight by Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company is an evocative promenade performance that celebrates our desire to fly. The performance captures the beauty, power and drama of flight in all its forms within the historic house and gardens of Brockhole on Windermere.
The journey walks you through the evolution of flight to reveal Brockhole’s fascinating past, the rich history of Cumbrian aviation and images of First World War young airmen and the people they left behind.
