Weorgoran Pavilion

15 – 24 June 2018

Weorgoran Pavilion, South Quay, Worcester, WR1 2JN

The Weorgoran Pavilion pops-up in Worcester this summer, hosting a vibrant programme of literature, music, dance and workshops led by local artists.

The stage’s vibrant design is the creation of NEON, a design studio that works between the disciplines of art and architecture. The sculptural pavilion takes its inspiration from the Saxon origins of the name Worcester and its ancient translation, “the people of the winding river”.

The Weorgoran Pavilion reflects the light of its riverine surroundings in combination with a site-specific soundscape, Shire Skies, by acclaimed Ledbury-born musician and beatboxer Dave Crowe, at selected times.

NEON is an award-winning art, architecture and design practice who produce public projects at an urban scale. Their work engages with the public, transforms the ordinary into extraordinary and creates moments of surprise and excitement: they like to stop people in their tracks! You can see their film about designing the Weorgoran Pavilion here, featuring more footage and interviews: click here to watch NEON’s 3-minute film.
