Sound Walks

Historic England is working with the National Trust to launch a series of new Sound Walks in six High Streets Heritage Action Zones across England during Heritage Open Days, from 10-19 September 2021.

The Sound Walks, which will be available online, will be self-guided and create unique, immersive soundscapes that will inspire people to experience their surroundings in a new way. Sound Walks is a commission by Historic England, National Trust and Heritage Open Days with support from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. It forms part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme, led by Historic England.

Sound Walks is an exciting build on our previous work with artists. We’re thrilled to be working with Historic England with support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery to bring the diverse, fascinating stories of our local high streets to life through work with local people and skilled artists.
