Description: For Gathering, over a thousand used tennis balls become the subject of a short film and installation by international artist Hilary Jack in the Long Gallery at Little Moreton Hall. The newly commissioned art work titled Gathering takes its inspiration from the discovery of a handful of Tudor tennis balls found during restoration work in our Long Gallery. For the installation, Hilary Jack has collected over a thousand used tennis balls, gathered from Wimbledon and other tennis clubs all over the country. Working with film, Hilary has highlighted the topography of the Long Gallery while revealing the historic use of the space. To accompany the audio-visual installation, the Tudor tennis balls will also be on display for the first time in years.

Time: 11.00am to 4.00pm.

Location: Little Moreton Hall, Congleton, Cheshire, CW12 4SD.
