Edge Hill University is marking the 80th anniversary of its Ormskirk campus with a series of events including live performances, interactive exhibitions and a community open day. The celebrations begin on Wednesday October 2nd with a free evening of entertainment starting at 5pm. There’ll be a variety of family activities, street performers and acts, including a performance by the university’s award-winning dance company Edge FWD at 6.30pm. Then at 7pm there’s a spectacular outdoor aerial display when international company The Dream Engine perform their show Heliosphere, with an acrobat suspended beneath a giant colour-changing helium balloon.
Edge Hill’s Community Open Day (another free event) follows on Saturday 12th October. From 23rd September until 6th December the university campus also hosts a major art installation, which again can be viewed free of charge. Robyn Woolston’s Habitus uses strikingly unusual signs positioned around the campus to make the viewer reflect on the earth’s geological history and current issues of climate change.
