Rider Spoke - Sheringham


To cycle with no particular destination offers a rare freedom. Rider Spoke invites you on a ride in search of the perfect place to hide a secret. Guided by a narrator and a delicate score by Blanket, explore the area by bike for an hour. Think about the people in your life while you ride. Record messages and share them with strangers you will never meet. Ride on and the voices of strangers will draw you to new and unknown places.

To take part, you are provided with a smartphone and mount to place onto your handlebars. Just bring your bike or borrow one of ours to begin your ride. We also offer a range of accessible options for non-cyclists (Contact the box-office to learn more).

Rider Spoke premiered with a sold-out season at the Barbican in London and has since been shown in 22 cities worldwide.

Based in Brighton, Blast Theory create internationally celebrated experiences that explore how we connect with strangers and how technology shapes society.

‘A gloriously enlivening piece of theatre …the show’s greatest gift is that it manages to embrace the remorseless rush of the City while insisting on the individual’s ability to pierce it with quiet reflection.’ Metro

‘We are truly fortunate in this century, in the wired and anonymous city, to have rediscovered Aboriginal notions of songlines and Dreamtime, to explore with the aid of mobile technology a new form of strangely low-tech play. Rider Spoke was magical.’ Icon

Want to take part but don’t have access to a bicycle? You can borrow a bike for free at the 2pm, 4pm & 6pm each day. There’s up to four bikes available at each of these performances.

Age guidance: 16+
