Experience dawn with live music as daylight sweeps across the UK on Saturday 16 May 2020.

On Saturday 16 May 2020 you are invited to find your own view of the sky and join in with people across the UK in a shared witness of dawn, marking everyone’s individual experience as daylight sweeps across the country in a continuous wave from the North East to the South West.

At 3:43am tune into an online broadcast as six performers from six sites across the UK create a live, musical performance that celebrates darkness turning to light.

DAWNS is a celebration of togetherness, difference, nature and light. It’s a reminder that we all experience the world differently, and that the natural world can’t be pinned down, no matter how hard we try.

This mass-participation artwork by non zero one is made in collaboration with composer James Bulley, commissioned by the National Trust in partnership with Heritage Open Days.

It takes place live and online, and is lockdown-friendly – you find your own view of the sky and then tune in to the broadcast online. During the performance you are invited to take part in collective actions to mark your dawn, or simply be represented by a pin on the map

In order to witness and listen to this experience, please sign up in advance to receive details for tuning in.
