Sounds of Science with Evelyn Glennie, Jill Jarman and Christopher Lloyd

Friday 17 June
The Times Marquee
5.45pm - 7.15pm  /   £20
The Sounds of Science is simply unmissable – it’s the first time the festival has mounted a performance event on this scale. The world’s greatest percussionist, Dame Evelyn Glennie will perform a groundbreaking soundscape written by composer Jill Jarman and conceived by time line specialist and world history author Christopher Lloyd. Telling the amazing tale of almost 100 scientific discoveries made in the last 10,000 years, Evelyn will play what she calls “sounds depicting significant moments in history, including the discovery of fire, the carving of the wheel, connecting us by telephone” while Christopher’s superb narration introduces some of the moments featured using a giant time line of more than 1,000 inventions.
