Hundreds of local school children will get to explore a big and unusual musical instrument when it arrives in north Norfolk this month.

The Wind Pipes Organ was originally built for a show at the Edinburgh Festival, but innovative artist Sarah Kenchington who built it, will exhibit her hand-made instrument in the Old Chapel, South Creake, from 25 - 29 June.

In partnership with Norfolk Music Hub, schoolchildren from 10 Norfolk schools have been given the chance to explore the huge noise-making machine.

Throughout the week the students will take part in music-making workshops and investigate how sound is generated through wind instruments.

They will get the opportunity to make their own instruments using recycled materials and then play music together on the Wind Pipes Organ.
