The circular market hall has held a prominent and central focal point in Coventry’s architectural landscape for over 60 years. So in this soundscape, we slip inside to visit on an ordinary Monday morning in January. As we weave our way around the building for a full 360 tour, we enjoy listening in to the locals and traders’ passing exchanges and purchases.

It’s not compulsory, but these soundscapes are best listened to while wearing headphones! All conversations are authentic and real. The recordings were captured using a binaural microphone between January and April 2022. You can also hear these soundscapes in the accompanying storyteller episodes in our first series.

Sound design by Clare Freeman, opening music by Mintakaa. ‘Our Cov’ podcast series is a Coventry City of Culture Trust commission, created and produced by A Small Furry Bear Productions.
