We’re very excited to welcome Black Men Walking the B2 Stage from Weds 7 – Sat 10 February. The show is the first national tour born from Revolution Mix – a three year movement that will spearhead the largest ever national delivery of Black British stories.

Thomas, Matthew and Richard are part of a walking group, but they have to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards on a walk that is like no other.

Black Men Walking has been written by MC, rapper and Guinness World Record-holding beatboxer, Testament. A vibrant and exciting new piece which fuses music, poetry and drama, the show explores British history in a way that, in Testament’s words, is “a celebration of blackness, of Britishness, and the fighting spirit that Yorkshire has”.

Inspired by the Black Men’s Walking Group, based in Yorkshire, this show uses one particular walk as an insight into history, exploring the Black stories of the British Isles.
