Ticket + Camping from £7.50
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’s activities will include a guided listening walk, workshop sessions and a music performance 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 include cellist/composer Maja Bugge who will be leading a special performance from within the new bird hides, alongside a second artist to be announced in April. 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 – please book a ticket to ensure a place.
* 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
