Plus don't miss Sam Lee's special performance at Brighton Dome Corn Exchange on Saturday 28 MarchNightingales are possibly the most delirious and exotic sonic commanders of the avian world, casting a spell whenever you hear them sing. For six short weeks each spring, it’s the greatest concert you will ever hear.

Following his sell-out concert in Brighton Festival 2013, join folk singer Sam Lee for a one-of-a-kind promenade performance taking place in ‘a melodius plot of beechen green’ out on the South Downs. In the dead silence of the night, accompanied by musicians, Sam sings traditional songs to the nightingales as they sing back from the thickets.

Experience a spellbinding call-and-response collaboration between man and bird that you’ll never forget.

Warm clothes, sensible footwear and your own transport will be needed for this special late night event. Meet and greet fellow wanderers around a warming campfire, allowing time for your eyes to adjust to darkness as we will walk without light.

The nightingales generally return to the same location, but in case they decide to choose a new home for their short stay, we will advise ticket buyers 2 weeks in advance of the exact location/meeting point.
