At this time, people are instructed by Public Health England and Government to stay home. With this firmly in mind, The Broken Orchestra has adapted Fair Winds and Following Seas to be a comfort, as a home-based experience in these challenging times.

Showcased at Freedom Festival and BBC Contains Strong Language in 2019, Fair Winds & Following Seas was a completely unique and intimate experience with an original musical soundscape written by The Broken Orchestra and poetry from Vicky Foster. This immersive journey allowed you to explore the everyday world in a completely different way.

As we face these unusual times, spend an hour of your day in a safe environment with nothing but your imagination: let us take your mind on a journey from the safety of your armchair…

Please pay what you can. As self-employed creatives, The Broken Orchestra is asking people, who are in a position to do so, to pay what they can to enjoy this work. Details of how to contribute can be found here.
