Embark on a journey along the River Hull with a personal soundscape created by The Broken Orchestra exploring a historically rich yet seemingly forgotten area of the city.
Music and poetry created by production duo Pat Dooner and Carl Conway-Davis, and poet Vicky Foster weaves multiple musical textures and words to create powerful and evocative 3D soundscapes especially for this audio tour.
This unique experience will take the form of an individual walking tour guided by the soundscape.
