Four artists will transform a former world war two airfield in Norfolk later this month into a multi-sensory art exhibition with music and video clips.

The exhibition is based on the combat history of Seething airfield and has taken the artists 18 months to complete.

The works, which include a paradise garden, set out to add to the ways in which people see the wide expanse of the airfield, recalling the site's history and the events it was witness to.

Composer Jane Wells has used recordings of the B24 Liberator planes which flew from Seething airfield during the war in her original music while poet Rupert Mallin will perform a new work called the Pristine Parachute.

Visual artists Dominique Rey and Stephanie Douet have created a Garden of Paradise and also video footage.

The project, called Air Field, is free and is open from 12pm to 5pm on July 9 and 10 and from the 14 to the 17. There are live performances on July 9 and 16 at 8.30pm. For more information log on to www.air-field.co.uk
