**Breaking news: Edgelands will re-open at the Barbican on Saturday 17 March 2018.**
Edgelands is free and there is no need to book.
Simply download the app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android), go to the Barbican Silk Street entrance with your headphones, and follow the onscreen instructions.
The duration is between 30-90 minutes, depending on your choices.
There’s no set path to your journey – you’re free to explore – but if you have any access requirements there is an option avoiding stairs. Please contact Barbican Box Office staff if you would like to discuss any specific access requirements.
Barbican Centre, Silk Street entrance, London EC2Y 8DS
The Barbican is located in the heart of the City of London and is accessible by rail, road and underground.
As long as the Barbican Centre is open, you can begin your journey.
If you prefer to borrow a device and / or headphones, they are available from the Barbican Shop, in which case you will need to do the journey within shop opening hours.
Edgelands is an interactive composition, created by Seth Scott in association with Hannah Bruce & Company, and commissioned by the Barbican.
The app was developed through a University of York research grant, and supported by the Department of Music.

Edgelands works via Bluetooth beacons. A network of beacons installed around the Barbican ping your device, triggering content within the Edgelands app once you walk in range. The beacons are one-way transmitters, so cannot track your device – they only broadcast their location. We don’t gather any data from you.
