Head on over to the Humber Bridge, put on a set of our headphones and disappear into a sound adventure, walking the epic span of the Bridge, with a world of sound in your ears.

Music by Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, guitarist Eivind Aarset and electronic wizard Jan Bang gives way to the vast sound of the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North; threaded through with the deep music of the Bridge itself, captured by Hull based sound artist Jez riley French. Poetry is read by Maureen Lipman, Barrie Rutter, and 7-year-old Katie Smith from Hull, with musical arrangement by Aleksander Waaktar.

Evoking both the long history of sea travel from Hull, and the Bridge as a powerful symbol of home, The Height of the Reeds is an unforgettable experience in sound.

Celebrate the opening weekend (1 & 2 Apr) with us filled with unexpected surprises and extra treats along the way.

The walk is a minimum of 3 miles, as the Humber Bridge is the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world that it is possible to cross by foot. Please do make sure you dress for rain, wind and shine as the weather can change at a moment’s notice.

Height of the Reeds is now completely sold out. The experience does not run every day and is available only to ticket-holders at specific dates and times.
