Let the memories, dreams and imaginations of BS13 residents transform an apparently ordinary short pavement walk into something extraordinary.

This free and self-led sound walk is available at any time.

The creative writing produced took inspiration from local features on a mile-long walk in Withywood between Campus Pool Skatepark (BS13 7RW) and Withywood Park (BS13 8PL).

The sound walk is voiced by the writers themselves: Diana, Helen, Jacob, Jan and Sophie.

What’s a sound walk?
It’s a walk and you’re wearing headphones. When you get to certain locations, your smart phone magically plays some recorded sound that we’ve placed there.

What do I need to do?
Download the free Echoes app and the sound walk you’re attending in advance, using wifi by clicking this link: https://explore.echoes.xyz/collections/h9CbVa6CxOVpdLU9

Go to the starting location and bring your charged smartphone, sturdy footwear and headphones to listen to the walk.
