Outdoor Musical Trail for Boscombe Pier

The resort of Boscombe lies just to the east of Bournemouth on the beautiful Dorset coast and will soon be home to the UK’s first multi-purpose Coastal Activity Park. Launching on 12th and 13th April the Park will offer a range of new leisure opportunities both on land and at sea for residents and visitors to Boscombe beach.

Percussion Play was asked to produce a musical trail along the Pier. Originally built in 1888, this is a pier that has seen both good and hard times. Having remained derelict for a number of years it reopened in 2008 following extensive renovation. Boscombe Pier is not the longest, shortest or oldest pier, but it has come to be known as Britain’s coolest. Now visitors will be able to take a stroll along to the end of Boscombe pier, see the surfers, take some photos and share some music making together whilst enjoying the sea air!

The trail consists of Bell Lyre, Harmony, Babel Drum, Tubular Bells and Tembos as well as some bespoke ‘Seaside Chimes’ – 88 aluminium chimes which (when struck in the right order) will play ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’ – it had to be so!

All the instruments have been successfully installed and are now being enjoyed by visitors young and old!
