Join Octopus Collective, Cumbria Wildlife Trust and invited artists at South Walney Nature Reserve for Soundcamp , an overnight event in celebration of International Dawn Chorus Day.
The Cumbria Soundcamp is part of a network of UK and international sites taking part in the Reveil radio broadcast, which circles the earth at sunrise on a network of live audio streams. Each soundcamp is a chance to explore a place of acoustic and ecological interest through workshops, performances, presentations and an overnight camp.
The day’s activities will include guided listening walks and workshops followed by streaming the dawn chorus from Walney to a 24 hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak, relayed live by audio streamers around the globe.
Places are limited – please book a ticket in advance to ensure a place.
Tickets can be booked at eventbrite by clicking here.
Further details of invited artists and activities will be posted on this page during March.
* Please note that this is an overnight event and you will need to provide your own camping equipment and a contribution to a shared meal.
Sturdy shoes or Wellingtons and wet weather gear are also recommended.
A minibus to the reserve will be provided from Barrow-in-Furness rail station for attendees using public transport.
Please note that no dogs are allowed on site except for assistance dogs
