The Launch Day has been and gone, but you can still enjoy Light From The Shadows! Just sign out one of the MP3 players from Sarehole Mill or listen to the tracks online here. They can also be downloaded for offline listening.

Be the first to sample our new audio guided walks around Moseley Bog at our free launch day on Sunday 16 June.

We’re going together – in search of a moment of joy. Time has no power. The clock stops and we wander as we please.

Light From The Shadows is inspired by the people who wander through Moseley Bog regularly and by the life of JRR Tolkien who played there as a child. Music, voices and stories will provide an exciting audio experience and open up your imagination as you explore the bog’s spectacular scenery. Borrow a MP3 from the tour’s starting point, Sarehole Mill, and let your adventure begin! There’s a lot of ground to explore so sensible footwear is advised.

Plus there will be lots of other fun activities for all ages throughout the launch day. Go bug hunting, create a magic wand, build a den, sample a writing workshop, investigate the pond wildlife, and see free performances specially created for the day.

Light From the Shadows is a Birmingham Repertory Theatre Neighbourhood REP project in collaboration with Hall Green Library, The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country, Sarehole Mill, and Cole Valley South District Scouts; funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
