Coastal Explorations

Coastal Explorations is an in depth journey around the North East’s beautiful coastline, created by schoolchildren aged 11-16, together with acclaimed guitar ensemble Ex-Easter Island Head.

Together, the group creates new music inspired by the coast, as well as designing, building and testing their own Aeolian instruments – instruments played by our strangest collaborator yet: the wind.

Their creations then come together for one magical performance at the Whitley Bay Playhouse.
