East Lancs Antenna – Canal Transmissions

The second in a series of activities and workshops with one of our audio artists in residence Rob St John. We’re gathering sounds and stories from the towpath, and we need your help! Drop-in to listen to underwater sounds from beneath the canal’s surface, explore our sound library, and lend your voice and perspective to a soundscape to be broadcast from the Super Slow Way radio barge, and in a sound installation in 2025.

Saturday 17th August, 11am-3pm. Lomeshaye Park, Nelson

Sunday 18th August, 11am-3pm, The Exbury Egg, Finsley Gate Wharf, Burnley, BB11 2FG

Saturday 31st August – First sound transmissions at DRIFT, onboard the Bill Hunt, Eanam Wharf, Blackburn

Participants at all sessions will receive a limited-edition East Lancs Antenna riso print.
