Enjoy the unique space of Castle Espie after hours, as the September new moon approaches and the sun sets, marking the beginning of a new life cycle and the onset of autumn. Host Tessa Ann will guide you through a Sound Spa Experience in the Graffan Room at this Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust venue.

Overlooking the garden, ponds, and Strangford Lough, you can relax and unwind to the sounds of singing bowls, gongs, and drums, complemented by Tessa's voice and the unique calls of the sanctuary's wildlife in this beautiful nature reserve setting. Nature gifts us messages, as do the birds. You may even encounter your totem animal.

Light refreshments will be served, giving you time to reflect on your experience and take in the stunning surroundings. During this time, you are free to step out into the gardens or onto the viewing platform for the ponds.

Following your sound experience, you are welcome to chat with a member of the Castle Espie team about the wondrous wildlife that visit this wetlands site.

Sound Bathing

The practice of therapeutic sound, like gong baths, uses sound vibration to help relax and reduce stress in the body. When you are more relaxed and less stressed it is easier for your body to activate its own natural healing mechanisms.
