FON Festival 2020

Starts: Date
Ends: Date


Join Full of Noises, 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 will include a guided listening walk and artist lead activities, 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.

Guest artists will be announced in early March. Sarah Dalrymple of Cumbria Wildlife Trust will also lead a guided walk of the site, a shingle island reserve that is home to a wide range of birds and wildlife including the only grey seal colony in Cumbria.

Places are limited to 8 - please book a ticket early to ensure a place.
