Boff Whalley requires urgent surgery on his hands and the recovery period needed will not allow him to tour this Autumn 2021. We apologise for any inconvenience but as a guitarist it is essential he follows medical advice. I'm sure ticket holders will join with us in wishing Boff well and we look forward to the show in June 2022
If you have tickets you do not need to do anything, all tickets remain valid for the new date. If you can no longer attend, please email the Box Office on firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund. You can also choose your refund in the form of a credit to your Reading Arts Account that can be used towards any future booking. Your credit will be valid for an extended period of 3 years giving you even more opportunity to enjoy a fantastic show with us in the future.
If you haven't received your refund after 30 days please re-contact the box office.

Do you ever want to run away from it all?
Dan and Boff did exactly that: they ran a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking that city. But what are we really running from?
In story and in song, These Hills Are Ours is the story of what they found out on those journeys. It’s about escaping it all by running to wild places. Escaping the city, escaping your past, escaping the restrictions upbringing or class or politics. It’s a celebration of wild places and our freedom to roam them.
Daniel Bye’s award-winning, internationally touring theatre is always engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Boff Whalley, best-known as a founder member of Chumbawamba, writes heartfelt, catchy folk songs. This, their first theatre piece together, sees them moving into their most personal material yet. It’s a not-to-be-missed collaboration between two of Britain’s most celebrated artists in their own fields.
