Due to unforeseen circumstances we regret to say that this talk has been postponed until 2022. We will update our website, social media and eventbrite details as soon as we have a new date.


The Storm Cone by Laura Daly, with music composed by Lucy Pankhurst is an immersive, augmented reality artwork. It is located on the site of the original bandstand in Peel Park and experienced via a free app. The Storm Cone is a journey through music and sound that considers our relationship with the past, while charting the fading away of a brass band during the interwar years (1918 – 1939).

Join artist Laura Daly in conversation with University of Salford Art Collection Curator Lindsay Taylor as they discuss the concept behind the work, Laura’s research and working with the university to create the final piece.

For more information about The Storm Cone visit the project website, where you can also download the free app to use in Peel Park.

The Storm Cone was commissioned by University of Salford Art Collection and Metal in collaboration with Salford Culture and Place Partnership on the occasion of Rediscovering Salford.

The talk will also be live streamed, view details.

FREE, booking required.
