Tickets: £7.50 - £10.00

Jeroen Strijbos and Rob van Rijswijk are sound artists from The Netherlands. With their landscape operas and Walk With Me tours they have been performing all over the world for more than 10 years, immersing well known places in sounds and music.

In 2021, they performed Signal on the Dachstein Glacier in Austria, on Irvine Beach in Scotland and on a monumental Watchtower in the north of The Netherlands, each time creating a special performance exclusively for that place and time.

For Norfolk & Norwich Festival, they composed a piece with their renowned Signal technology. Twenty long throw speakers and four live sopranos will transform the surroundings of Great Yarmouth, from the beach to the city, and you are in control of your own musical experience.

The music changes as the landscape changes, but the pace and the exact manner is up to you.

Two site-specific performances accompany the installation, in which live sopranos provide a captivating transformation of the town and beach around them.

Please also visit Signal On Sea for the daytime performances.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
