Last chance to see: the National Trust's Repton Revealed: Illuminating his Vision at Sheringham Park continues until Sunday 11th November, featuring a mesmerising display of light installations by award winning arts collective Tundra, in celebration of the 2018 bi-centenary of landscape gardener Humphry Repton (1752 - 1818). The closing night will also feature a specially commissioned One Minute's Silence animation screened at 19.18 to mark Remembrance Sunday.
The One Minute's Silence film is by East Anglian artist Lois Cordelia, who also created three papercut lightboxes to feature as part of Repton Revealed, inspired by and bringing to life pages of Repton's famous leatherbound "Red Book" of Sheringham Park. Lois has based her papercuts on Repton's original watercolour paintings of Sheringham Park, reimagining each one as an intricate, three-dimensional papercut tableau. Each layer is cut out of paper using a surgical scalpel. Illuminated from behind, every tiniest detail is apparent and the effect is truly magical.

Repton Revealed takes you on a nocturnal journey through stunning displays of light and beauty, walking the mile-long path that connects the visitors centre to Sheringham Hall itself. Lois's lightboxes will be located inside the Ling House, which is a small hut thatched with ling heather half way along this path. Continue along the path to the stunning reveal of Tundra's grand finale, evoking Repton's vision of Sheringham Hall as a "fairytale" palace.
