Keats-Shelley House Joins the RSPB’s Let Nature Sing Takeover

On 17th October, Keats-Shelley House joined the RPSB’s Let Nature Sing Takeover. People across the world were asked to play birdsong on whatever device was handy to help raise awareness of the threat of extinction looming over birds across the United Kingdom, and elsewhere.

Keats-Shelley Curator Giuseppe Albano filmed the event for posterity, recording a guided tour of the museum from the Salone to John Keats’ bedroom, soundtracked by nightingales and skylarks. The event also offered the chance to show some bird sculptures by T-Yong Chung, whose work was recently shown in the House’s Stanze exhibition.

Songbird is the theme of 2020’s Keats-Shelley and Young Romantics Writing Prizes. For more details, click on each link.

Please visit the RSPB’s website for more infomation about their Let Nature Sing Project.
