STARTS AT THE LAWRENCE BATLEY THEATRE
Welcome to YOUR TIME IS NOW
Part of the Walk This Play series by ThickSkin, commissioned by Lawrence Batley Theatre
Huddersfield is trapped in a time loop. Unknowingly repeating the same day over and over. But time is slowing down, and the town is at risk of being lost forever.
Today’s assignment is to reactivate time.
Collect the clocks and clues that will help you on your way as Commander X guides you round the streets of Huddersfield. But hurry, you don’t have long! Your mission begins at Lawrence Batley Theatre.
Walk This Play is a new series of location-based audio plays by ThickSkin, designed for listeners as they walk.
The plays are immersive and immediate, transporting you inside the story. Each is unique to its location and invites you to experience a familiar route from a new perspective. Through narration and original music blended with the sights and sounds around you, Walk This Play takes you on a journey of imagination and discovery.
To enjoy the experience, simply download the Walk This Play app, plug in your headphones and press play.

The pandemic has been a challenging time for the sector. Against the odds, ThickSkin has continued to make work and employ freelance artists through innovative projects. If you can make a donation, no matter how big or small, your donation will help us to keep going.
Keep your GPS and wifi enabled. Follow the instructions given by the narrator. The route is circular and will start and end at the Lawrence Batley Theatre courtyard. When you start the walk, you will see your current position as a Yellow dot on the map.
If the app asks you about location settings, select ‘allowed all the time’ to improve GPS. If the sound disappears, just check on your map to find your route again.
The walk will last around 45 minutes (depending on your speed) with some inclines, but no steps. The walk will wait for you and can be enjoyed at your own pace.
As this is an audio experience, D/deaf audiences can choose to use the in-app captions. Visually impaired audiences may need a walking companion for safety with crossing roads.
Walk This Play experiences are suitable for ages 12+
