Behold Ye Ramblers! is the story of the Clarion Ramblers, their contribution to the Right To Roam and to the health and wellbeing of working people after its formation well over a hundred years ago.

The Clarion Movement itself was made up by readers of the ‘The Clarion’ newspaper that formed clubs dedicated to leisure and educational pursuits – Clarion cyclists, Clarion Ramblers, Scouts, Clarion Vocal Unions (choirs), and so on – and to the promotion of Socialism.

Songs from “The Clarion Song Book” will provide much of the backdrop for the show.
