Black Men WalkingWed 9 - Sat 12 October 2019
Sat Matinee 2.30pm
“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us. We walked England before the English.”
Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk.
They walk the first Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk…
Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards.
The first story from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British stories. Black Men Walking returns for a second UK tour following its huge sell-out success last year.
Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group.
