“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.

After last year's sell-out tour, Black Men Walking returns to the stage as part of Eclipse Theatre Company's Revolution Mix movement, which reveals hidden stories from over 500 years of Black British history.

Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group.

Originally co-produced with Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.
