Frome needs little introduction these days as an exciting and creative place, full of surprises.

The latest exciting, creative and surprising event in Frome is LISTEN, presented by Black Swan Arts in association with Artmusic. It promises a summer full of opportunities for new ways to hear the world with installations, concerts, workshops, artworks, walks, talks and the occasional thoughtful silence.

LISTEN is an invitation to explore your surroundings through sound. Whether you want to play or learn, look or listen there will be something to suit your tastes, so bring your ears and an open mind to Frome this summer for an aural extravaganza.

LISTEN has been generously funded by Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund, Frome Society for Local Study, Frome Town Council and many crowdfunders – see website for donors.
