Day 4

The Big Sunday Lunch







For our final festival day, we have decided to place less emphasis on scheduled events. Instead we are calling on you, yes, all of you, to sit down with your family, friends, neighbours (especially the ones you haven’t met yet) and share a Sunday lunch!

Don’t forget to share your photos and experiences with us, social media, post, telephone, we don’t mind, as long as you don’t make us too jealous with photos of cake…

Across the Tracks

Kate Rudman / Sound Communities

Intergenerational music and story sharing / live radio show over different locations – young and old sharing their music in a ‘spin off’

Sound Communities will roam the festival with young and old radio makers, recording, audio blogging and broadcasting conversations, memories and stories. Parkfield Xtreme Radio’s young producers will support older trainees to produce and present a daily live broadcast from all around Torbay. We encourage anyone interested in learning about radio to bring vinyl, old photographs of yourselves and your local area and interesting objects to describe and talk about to make a wonderful local soundscape for future generations to treasure. These broadcasts will be available to listen to immediately again online.
