Sturzstrom: a landslide event for voices

by Marc Yeats (world premiere)

7pm, Friday 1 June, 2012

Beer Quarry Caves (

Sturzstrom takes the form of an imaginary journey along the Jurassic Coast, traveling east from Exmouth to Lyme Regis, setting the scene as it were for the catastrophic landslide (blockslide) that occurred at Bindon on Christmas Eve, 1839. This geologically-inspired soundscape has found its perfect setting in the vast underground caverns of Beer Quarry Caves.

Tickets are free, but there is strictly limited capacity in the space. Please use the form below to reserve tickets (for both adults and children) which will be available on the door.

The performance is expected to finish at about 7.40pm and there will be an opportunity to continue the evening with a tour of the Caves led by John Scott and his expert team.

Please note that regrettably the path to the cave entrance is not accessible by wheelchairs. You will need to wear warm clothing and sturdy footwear – for full details, please see the Caves website at
