Hosted by BBC Radio 3 Late Junction broadcaster and Musicity founder Nick Luscombe, join us for night of live music, sound installation, talks and readings. This evening of stimulating sight and sound will explore the ways in which artistic expression can be used to bring a new dimension to the way we experience cities and the world around us.

Musicity seeks to encourage people to explore the city musically, architecturally and experientially by commissioning musicians to compose original tracks in response to a building, site or place in the city that inspires them.
