The Beanfield at HOME

31 March 2016 - 02 April 2016

It’s been 30 years since the Battle of the Beanfield – a brutal crackdown on the annual Stonehenge Free Festival.

Called away from policing the miners’ strike, officers enforced an injunction around the ancient stones with bloody violence and mass arrests.

Armed with a camera, a map and home-made riot gear, performance makers Breach, and Guardian award-winning video artist Dorothy Allen-Pickard set out to mark the anniversary with a historical re-enactment.

Blending documentary footage with new writing, Breach presents a multimedia show set between the 1985 and 2015 summer solstice celebrations, reflecting on state violence, civic freedom and cultural heritage.
