Sound Mirror Exclusive Art & Photography Day at RSPB Dungeness

RSPB Dungeness is proud to welcome you back to the enigmatic island of the Sound Mirrors in 2024.

Nestled on an 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 10am to 4pm, document the listening dishes without worrying about the crowds. Have the space to capture and create, whether that's through photography or videography, sound recording, painting, poetry, or writing. Whilst immersing yourself in the history and the captivating engineering of the Mirrors you'll get the opportunity to meet other likeminded people and share ideas.

There are limited tickets for each date, so we advise pre-booking tickets as we may be unable to accept drop in visits on the day if we are at capacity, due to health and safety reasons.

Free entry for children under 5 and carers with accompanying ticket.

Dogs are not permitted at this event, except assistance dogs.
