This one-off performance of spoken word and music takes place in the heart of Macclesfield, in St Michael’s Church, against the backdrop of film and images created in response to monthly visits to Macclesfield Forest over the course of 2020.

For Our Future is Ancient, Simon began visiting Macclesfield Forest in December 2019  on the winter solstice. He documented his visits every month f capturing words and images around the dawn of the full moon, and writing music inspired by his time amongst the trees. 

Our Future is Ancient explores themes of nature, isolation, fear, violence, solace, the passing of time, the seasons, and the winter and summer solstice. The project has taken him on a journey no one expected, at the time of a global pandemic when moonlight visits became more like pilgrimages.

Simon will be accompanied by musicians Rioghnach Connolly, who performs with groups The Breath and Honeyfeet, and cellist Liz Hanks who will be playing original, traditional and incidental music as part of the performance.

Limited edition prints of Our Future is Ancient photographs will be available to buy and order at the event.
