Promenade (Everybody’s Free)
Our colleagues at The Creative West End, working together with Angel Club (north) present a series of audio journeys along Morecambe’s magnificent seafront. Featuring the stories of local residents and an evocative electronic score, Promenade (Everybody’s Free) is designed to keep our minds and bodies active with every step.
The walks are designed to be a genuine exercise, whether that be as a one-off experience or as a daily ritual. For people who are less confident with the pace, we have also created a version without the beat (below). On each track, along with some local voices, you will also be accompanied by the voice of Angel Club (north) who will give you instructions as to where to go and what to consider. Be sure to listen carefully!
The walks are timed with each beat of the music so that you arrive at each point correctly and get you back to the starting point on time too. You may take as many breaks as you like to enjoy the scenery, but make sure to restart your track at the same location as you paused it on. Enjoy!
