About this Event

Come along on this multisensory walk across the Black Country's overlooked landscape, literature and history brought to life by live writers and actors. It will change your perception of this neglected region. 

The walk weaves together five events focusing on the senses. Starting in St Peter’s Square, Wolverhampton, we listen to Black Country sounds. At Wednesbury library, the public are invited to do hands-on research during a workshop on ‘linguistic landscaping’, where people read stories on public private and official signs in the Black Country. At Great Bridge library, writers will talk about the smells and tastes of the Black Country. At the Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust, people will literally be ‘legging it’ by pushing a barge through tunnels. A spectacular finale at the Black Country Living Museum brings together all the senses. Throughout the walk, people are invited to collect images, sounds and other materials to contribute to a sensory collage to be unveiled at Wolverhampton Literature Festival 2020.
