Tim Brennan: Luddite Manoeuvre


Tim Brennan's new walk for Loughborough retraced  the route taken by the town's Luddites on an infamous evening in June 1816. The route dropped into a number of pubs in which the Luddites drank, shoring up their nerve prior to their notorious night of machine wrecking. Using a broad range of quotations, which revisited or undermined historical facts, Tim Brennan's guided walks encouraged new takes on historical events. 

Tim Brennan has gained critical acclaim for his 'manoeuvres' (tactical walks) which he describes as 'existing  in a region between traditions of performance art, the historical tour, loco-descriptive poetry, pilgrimage, expanded notions of sculpture, curating and plain old pedestrianism'.
