Go on an amazing sonic voyage through the streets and parks of London Bridge

Let a magical sonic sphere take you on a journey to a secret location in London Bridge and surrounding areas, guiding you by sound alone.

Seemingly possessed of its own mind, it leads you through familiar and unfamiliar terrain. Can you keep the sphere ‘happy’ by going in the right direction?

In return the sphere will take you on a listening experience and voyage to the mysterious final destination where you will encounter a meeting of the spheres, a chiming, pulsing web of electronic sound.

How it works

The exact location of your mystery start point in the London Bridge area will be sent to you by email before the event.
 
One ticket/orb is £5 and you can have from one to four people per orb. All ages are welcome, and all children must be accompanied by an adult, i.e 2 children and 2 adults per orb.

Participants will need to be able to walk for over half an hour. Children under 5 should be carried or in pushchairs.

This event takes place outdoors - in all weather! - and will involve crossing busy roads and walking through busy areas. Please stay aware of your surroundings and your safety at all times.

The event starts promptly, so please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time. Latecomers will not be able to take part.

'Making work for outdoor contexts gives me the possibility of reaching many more people and something interesting happens when you take an audience outside of traditional art venues. We stop being so governed by the protocols of these spaces, from the hushed silence of the concert hall to the studious reverence of the art gallery and we can see the artwork as being part of our actual lives not as something removed from it.' Ray Lee
