Chirp! Twittering! A swish, a swoosh and a rustling of the trees. Begin your walk through Prior Park Landscape Garden and take a moment to listen to the sounds of nature before discovering a pop up musical playground.
Inspired by the landscape of Prior Park, Sound UK have challenged adventure play company TouchWood to make a group of ‘woodland instruments’. Nestled within Prior Park grounds the musical playground is for you to discover, explore and play.
Tell your family and bring your friends and try out your music-making skills together!
Suitable for all ages.

About Prior Park Landscape Garden
Beautiful and intimate 18th-century landscape garden in Bath. One of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the world can be crossed at Prior Park, which was created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen, with advice from 'Capability' Brown and the poet Alexander Pope.
The garden is set in a sweeping valley where visitors can enjoy magnificent views of Bath. Restoration of the 'Wilderness' has reinstated the Serpentine Lake, Cascade and Cabinet.
A five-minute walk leads to the Bath Skyline, a six-mile circular route encompassing beautiful woodlands and meadows, an Iron Age hill fort, Roman settlements, 18th-century follies and spectacular views.
