Back in 2013 - 10 Years Ago on 19th September, Kev KThomas Oyston and I met in the flesh for the first time to launch "Tales from the Black Meadow" at Reading Library. It was a packed event and one that I look back on with real fondness. I have been enmeshed in the world of Black Meadow since then with 4 books, 4 albums and a host of events that explore this strange place and its phenomena.
To celebrate this I am publishing "Tales from the Black Meadow - The Play" on Tuesday 19th September. Back in 2017 I conducted a daft experiment, taking a coach load of students from Reading to Caedmon College in Whitby to perform the play for the first time in one day. We travelled across the Black Meadow through the mist to get there. It was subsequently performed at South Street Arts Centre, Reading and the Bradfield Greeker. It is like a fever dream now but hopefully this little book captures some of it.
I am really chuffed that Bob Fischer, who also attended the premiere, has kindly written a foreword.
Celebrate with us and get lost in the mist.
