Thursday 23rd April 7.30pm / Main House


By Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley

Dan and Boff decided to run a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking the city.

In story and in song, this is the story of what they found out- about the relationship between city and country, between wild and controlled, about land ownership, about why we’re drawn to wild places -and about what we’re really running from.
