The art installations are designed to be visited from dusk to dawn (9.30pm-5.30am) from 19-22 July. The Peace Camp sites will be set up at eight of the most beautiful coastal locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and visitors to the sites will be able to explore glowing encampments of hundreds of tents, and hear a soundscape of voices murmuring love poetry.
