BEHOLD YE RAMBLERS

A new play by Neil Gore.

From the voices of ramblers and campaigners to the songs and poetry inspired by past and current struggles, BEHOLD YE RAMBLERS is a new play about The Clarion newspaper and the organisations formed by its readership, including the famous rambling club, The Sheffield Clarion Ramblers.

Along with the Clarion Cyclists, these early Edwardian pioneers promoted healthy outdoor pursuits, organising expeditions across open moors and mountains whilst campaigning for the right to roam, bringing them into conflict with landowners’ hunting and shooting activities and laws that prioritised private property over the wellbeing of others.
