LOVE STORIES is a digital audio trail in the recently restored South Cliff Gardens. Real-life love stories connected to the gardens, told by those who experienced them, with orchestral backing and community choir. A romantic promenade of storytelling, music and song.

HOW TO ACCESS THE AUDIO TRACKS


 

STREAM FOR FREE

Click the button above or download the Bandcamp app onto your device and search Sinfonia Viva / LOVE STORIES. You can stream the five track album here. (WIFI in the gardens may be patchy).
