More Information on Blood Ah Go Run

It’s been 40 years since the New Cross Fire, a devastating event that’s considered a pivotal moment in the UK’s fight for race equality. Despite the incident claiming 13 young black lives, this tragic loss was met with indifference from the media, police and politicians - spurring on history-making activism.

Years later, grim parallels can be seen in 2017’s Grenfell fire, Black Lives Matter and continued racism at the hands of far-right groups. However, out of this grief came a wealth of poems, books and songs, each shining a light on this devastating incident and the work that still needs to be done.

Audiences will also be treated to a performance of Linton Kwesi Johnson's iconic New Crass Massakah.
