Tickets On Sale Now
Caravan Farm Theatre presents its first-ever audio Land Walk series.
An immersive audio experience, the Land Walks will run year-round. Three new audio creations that lead the listener on a 30 minute walk through our 80 acres. Created by four BC based artists, the walk has been purpose built to guide the listener through the land: a meditation on the natural world and an experiment in the soundscape of storytelling.
The walk is approximately 2.5km and 30-45 minutes long. Each booking can accommodate a group of up to 6 people.
Each guest will receive a sanitized MP3 player. For health and safety, you can either bring your own headphones with a regular audio jack, Bluetooth is not compatible, or be provided a sanitized pair of over-ear headphones.

WHAT IS A LAND WALK?
A land walk is an audio-led narrative experience through our 80 acres of land. The sound will immerse you into the rural landscape, leading you along a path.
HOW WILL I LISTEN TO THE SOUNDWALK?
You will be given a sanitized MP3 player with an explanation of how and when to use it. For the best experience, we suggest you use our sanitized over-ear headphones. If you would like to bring your own, they will need to have a regular audio jack, Bluetooth is not compatible.
CAN I REMOVE THE HEADPHONES WHILE ON THE WALK?
Yes – but please do not pause, restart, or skip the audio in any way. If you would like the full and immersive experience that this was created for, we recommend that you leave them in. The audio will give you directions on paths to go on and turns to make.
