In celebration of the Landmark Trust’s 50th Anniversary, Clavell
Tower in Kimmeridge Bay in Dorset is one of only five special Landmark
Trust sites across Britain selected to host ‘LAND’, a temporary
installation by sculptor Antony Gormley. Over a special Golden Weekend
of celebration in May, choirs and musicians at 25 Landmark Trust sites
across Britain performed a new composition by musician Kerry Andrew in a
shared ‘Golden Moment’.

At Kimmeridge, Sammy Hurden led the locally based Freedance Choir in performing their interpretation of this Anthem, and other works in response to the dramatic coastline of this area. The Ridgeway Singers & Band also performed pieces of local significance, and all events on the day were coordinated by Artsreach.
