One for the birds in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Emma Bennett, Laura Cannell and Hanna Tuulikki interpret bird talk for International Dawn Chorus Day

Birds: A Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park SoundCamp will take place on International Dawn Chorus Day, which this year falls on the first Sunday in May. People are invited to wander through the park while Emma Bennett, Laura Cannell and Hanna Tuulikki perform their interpretations of birdsong through speech, song and instrumentation.

This Soundcamp is part of a network of UK and international sites taking part in the Reveil radio broadcast showcasing events exploring places of acoustic and ecological interest through workshops, performances and presentations.

Happening from noon–2pm on 5 May, the SoundCamp is free to attend, although you need to book ahead. Participants are asked to meet at Soanes Centre, Southern Grove, at midday. The event will also be broadcast live by Reveil Radio.
