Cogges After Dark is part of the national ‘Museums at Night’ festival with Culture 24. Picnic in the orchard as dusk falls, and experience ‘Field Test’, a solar-powered light and sound installation by Alex Bradley, as it flickers into life as darkness falls.
Steph West: A harper, singer and composer, Steph has a love of dancing rhythms, vivid chords and a free flowing melody. She performs with a delicate soulfulness and a dusky, pure voice for stories and scenes. With songs ranging from the traditional to the contemporary, Steph is fascinated by a strong story, a good question and an awkward answer.
Jess Hall: Jess Hall grew up near the coastline of North Devon and started writing songs about the quirks of love and life just before moving to the starkly landlocked Oxford five years ago. Since that time she has established herself on the local scene with her simple stunning clarity of voice and images of coastal love and loss.
