BBC Radio 4 and St Pancras International team up to offer visitors a time-travelling experience
Commuters and visitors to St Pancras International will be treated to a sensory experience this week in the form of the BBC Radio 4 Listening Bench, a temporary audio installation which was introduced to the station on Monday.
A first of its kind, this installation will encourage passers-by to experience the world differently through specially curated, high quality speech content about St Pancras International.
To immerse themselves in this iconic sensory experience, all visitors have to do is plug their headphones into the bench and they will be transported through history through listening to clips from the Radio 4 archives.
The audio clips include the story of Luke Jerram, whose “Play Me, I’m Yours” project saw pianos installed in various locations in 46 cities across the world - including St Pancras.
A St Pancras International spokesperson said: “St Pancras International is delighted to host Radio 4’s Listening Bench throughout this week to encourage visitors to take a moment out of their daily routines to experience the sights and sounds of something different."

Join us this National Poetry Day, Thursday 6th October as we'll be hosting a suite of exclusive, free events throughout the day in partnership with the Betjeman Poetry Prize and Poet in the City.
The Betjeman Poetry Prize will lead the afternoon events with their winners’ ceremony, hosted by one of this year’s judges, Imtiaz Dharker and featuring a guest recital from prize patron, Joanna Lumley.
As evening falls, Poet in the City, working with Maslaha, will bring to life this year’s common theme of ‘messages’ through the lens of the Landai – a form of female poetry written in Afghanistan. Seated tickets are available (free) via Eventbrite.
Throughout the day, visiting poet storytellers will be on-site sharing engaging passing commuters and visitors in immersive poetry experiences using new and old Landai poems, asking the question:"If you could say anything, what would it be?"
