John Watkins, Chief Executive, The National Association For Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty said: “The Green Space Dark Skies project is completely unique and a national invitation to everyone to spend time in our most cherished places. We are involved for good reason as the AONBs’ teams are serious about reaching those audiences we may have historically served and those who may not have previously explored an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Chilterns is one of the most accessible protected landscapes in Europe with 1.6 million people living within 10km of it, and there are 46 AONBs in the UK waiting to be discovered, each completely unique.”
The choreography has been captured on film and a short film which incorporates the stories of the people and place of the Dunstable Downs gathering will be broadcast online after the event.
Walk the Plank is working with the National Trust as creative and delivery partners in a number of locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
