Walking a fine line

An entertaining evening was in the balance as UK City of Culture staged a major event in Warwickshire.

An entertaining evening was in the balance as UK City of Culture staged a major event in Warwickshire.

Chris Bullzini, who is one of only a handful of people from across the world who can claim the title of a funambulist – a 19th Century term for a high wire walker, was the star of a show at Compton Verney over three nights earlier this month.

The show, Caelum et Terram (Mother Earth and Father Sky), was part of the Coventry UK City of Culture Summer of Surprises and saw Chris traverse the Upper Lake at the Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park on a 100-metre wire.

The event was watched by packed crowds on a hot and sunny weekend.

Adam Dent, Managing Director of Advent Communications – which has worked on UK City of Culture for more than five years – said: “It was a spectacular event in spectacular surroundings and on a quite beautiful weekend. It was received really well by a large audience and I am sure the whole event left a real impression on those who attended.”
