Remember when libraries were all about elderly bookish types telling you to ‘shhhhhh’? Not here in Halton!

Halton Borough Council is launching ‘Supersonic Sounds in the Library’ a programme of interactive sonic art workshops funded by Arts Council England, Halton Libraries, in collaboration with local digital music artist, Wendy Smith.

It is aimed at engaging children and young people with creative coding and sound art. Join us to have hands-on experience of this cutting edge and rapidly evolving area of music.

Participants will produce a piece of digital music of their own composition and will have access to expert knowledge in this new artistic context.

Supersonic sounds workshops will be full of creative energy, a must for those wanting to experience interactive creative coding!

As part of our ‘Library Learners’ course, we will be alhosting special Supersonic Sounds Workshops for adults with additional needs.

Discover how to sculpt with sound and create your own piece of sonic art. You do not need any musical training to become a musician, you just have to make a noise!

Wendy said: “I am ery excited to work with Halton Libraries to bring both digital music and sound based composition to the local community of Halton.”🎵🎵🎵 @

Supersonic Sounds: Sonic Art Workshops
yUnfortunately, we’ve had to change the dates of the Supersonic Sounds workshops at Runcorn and Halton Lea Libraries because Liverpool Hope University, who are supplying us with the equipment, now need the laptops the week we had originally agreed with them. So we’ve updated the workshops to the following dates:

Tuesday 19 March 4-5.30pm, Ditton Library
Thursday 21 March 4.30-6pm, Widnes Library
Runcorn Library – Tuesday 26 March, 4-5.30pm (instead of Tues 12th March)
Halton Lea Library – Thursday 28 March, 4.30-6pm (instead of Thurs 14th March)
