Women & Theatre presents an audio performance in Perry Hall Park, using the stories & voices of local women from Perry Barr.  

Run, Jump, Throw is an audio performance to be listened to whilst walking a particular route around Perry Hall Park. Join us to hear women’s experiences of track and field; making leaps, overcoming hurdles, achieving their personal bests and passing the baton to the next generation.

As an international sporting spotlight is shone on Perry Barr amid developments for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Run, Jump, Throw illuminates and celebrates the voices of local women. It has been made through workshops and conversations with local women whose voices you will hear.

This is an audio performance designed to be listened to with headphones, whilst walking or moving around a particular route of Perry Hall Park – but can be enjoyed anywhere! Maybe go to your local park, sit in your garden or from wherever you are, close your eyes and imagine…

Run, Jump, Throw is the second part of Women & Theatre’s Women & Sport Trilogy created with community casts and performed in non-theatre spaces across Birmingham.


You can watch a fully closed captioned version of Run, Jump, Throw below filmed in Perry Hall Park.

If using the Perry Hall Park route be aware it is mainly flat, consisting of concrete paths, pathways created by footfall, grassy areas and slopes. There is one step as you enter the secret garden, however a more accessible route is clearly marked on the map you will be given upon arrival.
