The Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle upon Tyne, was recently voted by Time Out magazine as “one of the coolest neighbourhoods on the planet” for food, fun, culture and community. Busy pubs, outdoor music events, music rehearsal rooms, commercial, industrial and residential premises now co-exist in this busy and vibrant area. Read more in a recently published article in The Developer, 

Apex Acoustics is organising a soundwalk through the valley, which will start near The Cluny, and end at The Tyne Bar. Come and listen for yourself and evaluate the richly varied soundscape in this area where sound is so important. Participants are asked to respond to a questionnaire at various locations, following ISO 12913-2. Learn about the process of a soundwalk and its role in data collection and reporting for a soundscape assessment. The soundwalk will last for an hour. There will be opportunities for discussion and socialising after the soundwalk.

Booking is essential as places are limited

The event is free to members of the IOA, students and the public, but places are limited so registration is essential. The reminder and meeting details will be sent to those who have registered about a week prior to the event. We will also ask those who are unable to attend to de-register so that those who are on a waiting list can take their places.

The places will be allocated on the first come base. In case of a severe weather forecast, the meeting will be postponed and organised on another day, and the participants will be informed.

Registration is available here


Registration will close 24 hours before the event. CPD certification will be offered for attendance.
