As Oliver Jeffers' 11.8 km-long solar system sculpture trail, Our Place in Space, reaches its final journey this weekend, a Bangor music venue will celebrate with a special weekend of creativity from life on earth.

Having already visited Derry, Belfast, Liverpool and Cambridge, the final Our Place in Space route begins at Ulster
Transport Museum, Cultra, where you can follow the trail onto a newly installed pathway opening onto the North
Down Coastal Path and stretching through Crawfordsburn Country Park, finishing at Bangor Pier.

The two-day showcase of free events in Bangor's Court House will feature traditional music, opera, free-form improvisation, film, song, extra-terrestrial radio, poetry and theatre.


Constellations of Noise is the culmination of a year-long programme of artistic intervention across Northern Ireland and features eight musicians – Rory Friers, Áine Mallon, Dee Isaacs, Steve Davis, Rose Connolly, Úna Monaghan, Aidan O’Rourke and Jamie Thompson, working with a diverse range of communities to create a cosmos-crossing set of sound and visual experiences. 

The Court House will be open from 11am–6.30pm on Saturday March 25 and from 11am–5pm on Sunday March 16.
