I've spent the past few moths getting to know the Stoke area of Coventry and it is bursting with history and stories. The reason is to write the second Walk With Me for Coventry based theatre company Talking Birds. Their first Walk With Me, took in Spon End and I loved it as an experience and being able to look and really see the city.
The walks are guided with an actor and participants wear headphones to tune into the sounds of the city past and present. There are other walks coming over the next 12 month exploring different areas of the city.
We start rehearsals for the Stoke walk this week with director Jo Gleave and performer Adaya Henry. There will be some work in progress sharings setting off from Fargo Village on 21st and 28th September.
