Church Street,


“…at concerts, violinists and flautists sway in mime, rapt to the sound of invisible music. Listening I hear differently”.

We are excited to announce Platform 4’s first major project since the acclaimed Memory Points (The Guardian’s Top 10 shows of 2015).

Pete Flood (arranger/percussionist with Bellowhead) and Jules Bushell, P4’s long-term sound designer, collaborate to create a 5-piece band full of acoustic experimental delight.
A concert with a difference, an immersive, celebratory event – think live concept album, stunning projections all layered with exquisite audio snippets.
This is a fabulous piece of music and a fascinating evening out, whilst being an insight into the world of hearing loss.
Settle down with a drink and ‘tune in’ to an experience that promises to be beautiful, moving and evocative.

"Platform 4 make remarkable work” Lyn Gardner The Guardian

ACCESS: For members of the audience who are hard of hearing the programme provides a full transcription of the text used in the piece. Some parts of the text also appear as projected visuals during the show.
