A silent disco theatre production is coming to a green space and historic site.

Murmurations, a guided walk and theatre show, will take place in Bedfords Park in Havering-atte-Bower from September 22 to 24 this year.

Organisers Tangled Feet, based in Luton, have promised music, drama and poetry in a "silent disco meets David Attenborough extravaganza" set in a Havering nature reserve.

Murmurations, originally made in 2021 for two nature reserves in east England, is focused on exploring the importance of the natural world to our lives.

Director Nathan Curry said he was thrilled to be re-staging Murmurations at Bedfords Park.

"Expect to spot dragonflies, deer and maybe even a kingfisher alongside our promenade performances," he added.

Participants are invited to put on a pair of headphones, meet a tour guide and walk through the "stunning" natural landscape.

Nathan said he was excited to bring the production to Bedfords Park, which has a history that reaches from King John, through World War Two, to the current protected Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserve.

In this production, Tangled Feet have partnered with Havering Changing, an eight-group collective led by Queen's Theatre Hornchurch.

Havering Changing is an arts and culture programme which supports people in Harold Hill, Orchard Village, Rainham and Romford.

It contains: Clarion Futures, Havering Colleges, Havering Asian Social & Welfare Association, Havering Volunteer Centre, Havering Youth Services and myplace, Rainham Association for Village Events and The Mercury Shopping Centre.

The original score is from Polly Wright whose Sing as the Crow Flies was named as one of The Guardian's albums of the year.

Steve Waters, behind acclaimed Radio 4 series Song of the Reed, is the Murmurations playwright.

Nathan added that Murmurations had been tailored for its Havering setting.

"[We] can promise a surprising piece of theatre experienced on silent disco headphones in the middle of glorious nature," he said.

Tickets, which include a free return shuttle bus, cost £5 and can be booked here.
