Description

Stepping Out by Red Herring

June 8th and 9th 2019

Join Red Herring on a unique shared journey, a fun and intriguing performance walk, which reveals little known stories of our coastline and invites us to experience it in new ways.

Come and walk with us along the unique Northam Burrows coastline. This place may be familiar to you but we’ll experience it together, in unfamiliar ways. You’ll be immersed in a journey of both travel and time: a monumental journey of the earth beneath our feet; the migratory routes of wintering birds; the marks left behind by boatbuilders and the footprints of life along this coastline. Through snippets of text, recorded sound and found objects, we’ll investigate the stories attached to the land as we travel across it.

A circular walk, developed in partnership with Northam Burrows Country Park, will cover 2 – 3 miles over uneven ground. Please come prepared to walk this distance with suitable outdoor footwear and clothing. You will walk for about 1.5 hours with stops and creative interludes along the way. We will provide light refreshments.

Unfortunately, as the walks take place over uneven ground, we aren’t able to accommodate wheelchairs or push chairs. Please also note, we’ll be walking in a group, so we also request that dogs stay at home.

Walks are suitable for young people aged 13+.

Numbers are limited to 20 on each walk.

Tickets are FREE, advanced booking is essential.

Please note, performance duration and finish times may vary, depending on the walking pace of each group.

Stepping Out is supported with funding from Arts Council England and the North Devon Coast AONB’s Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) which is funded by Defra. Stepping Out is part of a series of events celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the North Devon Coast AONB.

Red Herring will be running further Stepping Out events in September 2019, please join us on Facebook or visit our website for details and updates.

Cancellations: If weather conditions are unsafe, we will inform you of any cancellations by 10am on the morning of the performance. If, due to poor weather, a performance is cancelled we will endeavour to offer an alternative date.
