About this Event

Internationally renowned artist, Will Teather brings his unique artwork to Colchester for the very first time and we’re thrilled to host two brand new pieces in our museums! 

You will be able to find one of The Colchester Globes at Hollytrees Museum and another just inside the entrance to Colchester Castle, where admission tickets are not required. A third globe will be on display in Colchester’s Lion Walk Shopping Centre.

Each location will host its own globe, depicting a painstakingly detailed 360-degree view of its surroundings. Immerse yourself in these mini worlds and take a moment to ask ‘is everything as it seems…?’

For useful information, such as how to find us and what facilities our museums have, we recommend reading our Access information: Access at the Castle or Access at Hollytrees Museum

Teather’s globes take months to complete and have been exhibited both in the UK and internationally. For more information on The Colchester Globes, visit the artist’s website.


This event is free to all.
