Wicken Fen Workshop with Chris Watson

Saturday April 18th, 14:00-15:30

Windmill at Wicken Fen

We are excited to announce a special workshop as part of the Ocean Song project working with Chris Watson to capture the sounds of the waterways and their wildlife at Wicken Fen. This workshop is suitable for adults and young people over 12 years old. Places are strictly limited and booking essential: see below for booking details.

The Ocean Song sound installation is being created by award-winning sound recordist Chris Watson, known for his work on David Attenborough’s Life series and Frozen Planet, as well as work for radio, and creating sound pieces for Museums and other cultural institutions. This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to meet Chris, learn about recording in the natural world, and discover a world of sound from the different watery habitats around the great Wicken Fen nature reserve.

To book a place on the workshop, or for further details, please email us at umzc@zoo.cam.ac.uk

Please note, this is a popular event with a very limited number of places available. Maximum two places per booking. On this occasion we are unable to take any children under the age of 12.

Wicken Fen is within 10 miles of Ely and is one of Europe’s most important wetlands, supporting an abundance of wildlife. To find out more about Wicken Fen, including how get there, please visit their website:  www.nationaltrust.org.uk/wicken-fen/
