To honour Black History Month this October, BLACK* artists on the move presents the History is Now! Festival, an exploration of how history and the present moment converge, seeking to spur us on to deeper understanding and greater action.

Across three performances, an international programme of BLACK* artists will present a feast of dance, theatre, song and spoken word to examine and celebrate the complex histories of BLACK* communities around the world.

There will be special children’s performances from puppeteers Araceli Cabrera and Swallow’s Wings Puppetry, as well as international prize-winning writer Lemn Sissay OBE, the Tan Teddy Jamaican Folk Group, mime artist Jamel Colin, and the Sheba Soul Ensemble Theatre.

Book now and join us virtually! Only £10 for all 3 performances!

Alternatively, you can join us for the following individual livestreams: History is Now! Children, History is Now! Part 1, and History is Now! Part 2.
