This time next month we will be setting off on our Refugee Tales Walk of 2019, starting off in Brighton! The walk will take place from Friday 5 July to Wednesday 10 July and we will be walking from Brighton to Hastings.
Each summer we walk in solidarity with Refugees, Asylum Seekers and people being held in detention, telling the stories of people affected by immigration detention to raise awareness of the cruelty of indefinite detention. Refugee Tales is our outreach project which amplifies the voices of people who have been affected by detention through our book series and our annual summer walks.
Each day on the walk there will be an afternoon and evening event, where we invite poets, writers and people who have experienced detention to tell their stories. At the evening event there will also be music provided by an incredible array of musicians, including; Don Kipper! We will hear from prestigious writers such as; Monica Ali, Kamila Shamsie, David Constantine and many more.
The full walk and weekend walk tickets are sold out, but don’t worry – there are still tickets left for the day walks and you can also book tickets for the evening events! Find out more and book your tickets here.
