IMMA is delighted to present Rhona Byrne’s participatory installation ‘Garden Folly’ as part of Big House Festival. ‘Garden Folly’, a participatory visual art installation invites visitors to construct and re-construct their own spatial environments to create individual shelters / dens / follies and to collaborate with others to make a large scale installation which can be entered and explored as shared spaces. Located in the gardens to the rear of Castletown House, participants can contribute to this ever evolving installation that opens up a potential infinite series of variations to be inhabited and explored.

Big House Festival is a cultural carnival of arts, music, film and entertainment in the magical surroundings of Castletown House and Parklands. At Big House, there’s a new experience around every corner, whether you’re looking for top-drawer culture and entertainment, fab food and drink, or a daytrip with a difference in extraordinary surroundings. The Big House Festival has something for everyone from ages 1yr-100yrs throughout its dramatic ballroom, farmyard, stables, ancient woodlands and lush meadows. One ticket gets you a full day of amazing entertainment!
