Going back to your childhood home is hard. When you're queer, it's even harder - or that's what Jo finds, coming home for lockdown.
But tonight, things are going to change. Tonight, Jo's queer ancestors are going to march across Oxford in a Pride Parade that spans decades. Tonight, you're going to join them.

This is a new verbatim play about Oxford's queer past, inspired by oral history recordings collected by Tales of Our City and the Queering Spires exhibition (on display at the Museum of Oxford now).

Doors open at 5.30pm, performance starts 6.15pm.
Duration of performance: 45minutes.

The museum shop and a bar serving a small selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be open from 5.30 until the performance starts, and again after the performance until 7.45pm.
