Join Tom Marshman on a walk around the old city, stopping by places rich in memories, as he unveils true stories of the local LGBT history. From the politically charged marches and protests, to the prosaic and the illicit, this walk-about performance celebrates full lives of a community through their stories.
Tom Marshman is an artist based in Bristol. He actively encourages a dialogue with audiences and participants aiming to create a safe space to share thoughts and experiences. The results give evocative, authentic glimpses into every day things.
“Tom sings his song with the heart breaking surrender of someone aware how many people’s visibility depends on it” (Saini Manninen)
“Tom makes quite fantastical ideas seem very tangible, so there’s always something very hopeful and quietly celebratory in his work” (Tanuja Amarasuriya, Theatre Bristol)
“One of the most exciting things about Marshman’s work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound” (Big Issue)
