From the Kinder Mass Trespass of 1932 to the great Dartmoor Gathering of 2023, people have claimed the right to walk free across the land.
This documentary, Right to Roam, tells their stories using archive footage and photographs, recordings and interviews with activists, walkers and campers of all ages.
Captured in the beautiful landscapes from Pendle Hill to Dartmoor, Right to Roam tells their stories of protecting, defending and connecting with the land. changing the law, campaigning, occupying, and celebrating.
The film will be followed by a Q+A with the director, Charlotte Bill.
