Night Walk offers a rare opportunity to experience ‘shared acts of sensing’ on a coastal walk to Elberry Cove. Through a gentle play of communal experience we will arrive together in this place at night-time, using our bodies as sensory instruments to navigate the darkness and to notice what is already there. We will create a space for conversation and reflection on the beach where we will serve hot soup and fresh bread. The walk and conversation are suitable for beginners and all those curious to experience how shared acts of sensing might deepen our sense of togetherness with place, other humans and non-humans. Artist Emma Bush has worked with artists Mary Loveday and Anna Keleher to devise and lead Night Walk.
For this walk at Elberry Cove- Sat 5th Oct (6.30 – 9.30pm) we ask you to bring a small torch, a blanket, sturdy footwear, warm clothing suitable for all weathers. The walk is moderately easy but will take place in low light and darkness with uneven ground and some hills – the cove is accessed via steps with handrail.

We will provide hot soup (leek and potato – vegan and gluten free) and bread around a fire. If you do have specific diary requirements and this food does not suit you please bring your own provisions.
