    Tintern Abbey Sound Exhibition

    Daily 10am-5pm from Saturday 28th May to Sunday 5th June.

    Discover the stunning Tintern Abbey and dive into a creative sound bath of seas, rivers and human history, created specifically for the festival and this amazing place. Inspired by the festival theme Human  Nature.

    Take a dream journey through air, fresh water, and the ocean. Hear the dawn chorus within the grounds of Tintern Abbey before being carried by the waters of Afon Gwy to the North Atlantic. Swim with a hunting pod of Orca, surrounded by the songs of humpback whales in the Caribbean Sea.
