Grinagog Festival

We are still on the lookout for volunteers to join us in the creation of Torbay's first (as far as we know it) human murmuration! If you are curious, spirited and willing to move outside for a bit - we need you! 

Murmuration is part of Eyeview's Wavelength programme. Choreographer Suzie West is collaborating with Sound Communities to create a mass movement experience for audiences inspired by our local environment and species, Devon dialect, and murmuration maths!

First meet up is this Wednesday 6:30-8pm in the grounds of Torre Abbey (wear outdoor clothes and suitable shoes). Please contact Clare Parker to sign up to join the flock. Email 

Please share with your own flock :-)
