What's On on Romney Marsh
Events September 2022
Time: 11ma to 3pm
Sound MIrrors Open Day
You can gain exclusive access to the island at Lade Pits in Dungeness, Kent. Nestled on this island, you will discover the three spectacular relics of a pre-World War 2 acoustic aerial defence system, built to sound the alarm against enemy planes crossing the channel. Their secretive island retreat is the only location in the world where you can see all three designs in one place.
From 11am to 3pm, explore the mysteries of the listening dishes, talk to your friends and family from each end of the great 200ft curved wall and imagine what it would have been like to hear the engine sounds from approaching aircraft in years gone by.
There are limited tickets for each event, so grab yours early. However, if you don’t manage to get tickets for one event, don’t panic - there are plenty more dates to choose from.
