Pattering, chattering, squawking and singing - join us as we explore the unexpected qualities of the voice. Discover the extraordinary beauty of this everyday instrument as you build a replica vocal tract, get up close to an incognito opera singer, and meet a talking parrot. Stretch your glottis with a live voice remix session or a walkie-talkie conversation, experience the power of the broadcast voice in its many guises, or take part in one of our evening talks.

This is a special late-night event with a bar running all night.

This event is free. Drop in any time.

Tickets for the talks will be available from Wellcome Collection on the night of the event only.
