This listening bench has now finished its two-year tour.
The bench has been delivered to arts organisation METAL, based in Chalkwell Hall, Chalkwell Park, Southend-on-Sea. METAL will incorporate the bench into their NetPark, a project encouraging engagement with digital art in outdoor spaces, so keep an eye on your GeoCaching spots!
Did you enjoy using the bench while it was on tour? We would love to hear your feedback. You can share your thoughts in a quick online survey.
