Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra – Fault Lines

Event Date
Saturday 9th March 2024

Geevor Tin Mine


Full price £12, Under 18 £6, Family £30

Mining, migration, mythology, memories, music, mischief…

At a wake in a pub, a storyteller fondly remembers Cornish miner, Joe. Soon, a deeper story emerges about friendship, mischief and forces more powerful than man.

A haunting yet playful story told through music and song inspired by folklore, home, mining, memories, and mischief. The audience is warmly invited to join in, sing or play along – bring an instrument or just listen and enjoy the story.

Music by Luke Styles

Words by Hazel Gould

Featuring Chamber to the Grave by Jim Carey and traditional folk tunes

A Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Production in association with Tête à Tête and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Inspired by conversations at Geevor Tin Mine, the commission of Fault Lines has been generously supported by Gillian Emerson as part of BSO’s biennial Cornwall residency.
