Welcome back to a new series of ACE Stories for the Culturally Curious! As the days lengthen and our horizons begin to expand once again, over the following weeks we invite you to ‘take a walk’ with us in different parts of the UK, as we profile the natural history and cultural legacies of a diverse array of landscapes – including nature reserves, different parts of the coastline and some Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This week, we explore the fascinating past, present and future of Wicken Fen in ACE’s home county of Cambridgeshire.

The Aix-en-Provence ‘Festival de Pâques’ was founded in 2013 by the French violinist Renaud Capuçon and takes place in several venues across the town, including the historic 18th century Théâtre du Jeu de Paume and the spectacular Grand Théâtre de Provence. This annual festival runs for two weeks over the Easter period and attracts internationally renowned musicians. Since 2015, Emilie Capulet has been leading an ACE tour each year to Aix-en-Provence to attend the Festival; here, she shares some of her insights and experiences of the city.

Longford Castle is a remarkable country house located upon the River Avon near Salisbury, Wiltshire. Dating back to Elizabethan times, this magnificent home has been transformed by one family over the course of the past three hundred years into the setting for one of Britain’s finest collections of art. ACE is delighted to announce that a private guided tour of Longford Castle will feature on our tour of Art Collections & Stately Homes of the West Country later in 2021.
