The ADP was in Coventry 3rd - 9th June.
Northampton Council banned ADP1 from being shown in Market Square, shortly before it was to arrive at the square, due to the Purdah law in the run up to the EU referendum.
This was because the Northampton riot of 1874 erupted after elections were deemed unfair.
Instead, ADP1 was shown outside the Super Sausage Cafe for a few hours where Alan Moore came to visit and gave an interview to the local press with his thoughts on the piece.
"This is up there among the best, without a doubt," he said. "This is a brilliant expression of modern England. I think that it is a really brave piece of work and a really serious piece of art.
"I think that this says more about our current situation than any amount of the tepid conceptual art in the Saatchi collection, which doesn't speak to me at all."

ADP 1 at Festival 23, lit by a bonfire of self-help books.
The Festival 23 stopover was not commemorating a particular riot.
Festival organiser Ben Graham writes:
"Festival 23 is a kind of non-space that exists outside of geography and history while combining aspects of many different times and spaces. A kind of temporary autonomous zone / imaginary freetopia / ongoing peaceful riot of the imagination. What sort of society do we want to create after the rioting? How can we manifest the ideas and ideals of the counter-culture without imposing them from above? The festival as a free-flowing, self-policing model for society...
ADP was the centrepiece of DeSTABLise, framed by a series of installations in burned-down stables to the side of the festival site. DeSTABLise featured its very own Chapel Perilous alongside visual art, BDSM games, burning books, a talk from futurist resilience guru Vinay Gupta, a giant puppet of William Burroughs running Cut Up technique workshops, and sculpture and sound art exploring the concepts of utopia and dystopia in relation to personal development, identity and social change."

The Devonport's social enterprise bakery Column Bakehouse produced a special potato and rosemary Riot Loaf for the tour stop, to commemorate Plymouth's Bread Riots of 1801.
The ADP was in Plymouth from the 19th - 26th August.
The ADP outside the Falmouth Art Gallery.
After initial plans to take the ADP to Penzance to commemorate the Newlyn Fish Riots, Penzance Council decided the ADP would not be in keeping with it's image and so decided against hosting the ADP.
Annie and Mac from the Independent School of Art in Falmouth stepped in to find a location for the ADP, and in collaboration with the Falmouth Art Gallery it was placed on the Falmouth Moor. The ADP was shown alongside the Wreck and Ruin exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery.
As part of the stop buskers played music in front of the ADP, Cornish songs of Riot were sung, the ADP riot tour flyers were torn up in protest at violent protest, and there was a bring & share picnic/banquet, with music, words & mark making.

After a brief two-hour visit to commemorate the Trespass the ADP was moved to New Mills where it was shown as part of the New Mills Arts Festival. The programme included an opening event and raffle party for the ADP.
In the run up to New Mills Festival, Year 9 students from New Mills School had a number of workshops based on the ideas in the ADP.
The initial sessions included having someone with experience of direct action (miner's strike) going in to the classroom and initiating a discussion about the state, authority, rules (eg school uniform), resistance etc. Then in the practical stage the students made their own Riot in a Jam Jar where they used the idea of the jam jar as a contained space where they could freely express the ideas they'd been talking through. The students' Jam Jars were displayed in local shop windows during the festival and included in the Arts Trail programme.
Jimmy Cauty met the students from New Mills School to discuss how he built the ADP and the ideas within it.
The ADP was in New Mills from 19th - 26th September.

For the final day of the ADP's week-long stay in Stoke-on-Trent, AirSpace Gallery presented a new call to gather and discuss the Aftermath - asking: "what can we do, together, to help ensure the best possible future for Stoke-on-Trent".
During the gathering, local artists Martin Gooding, Average Joe, Official Culture, Richard Redwin, MURDOK and Becki Kremer presented two set piece works in response:
"1842" which theatrically recreated the Pottery Riots and its impact on people and place.
"The Belligerents" - Amongst the gathered masses not all is as it seems. A happening featuring crooked politicians, guitar wielding rebels and an array of other instigators, campaigners and debaters.

Sally Madge invited people to join her in a collaborative art-making session, with no agenda other than to explore the potential to create a table top alternative to Jimmy Cautys travelling dystopia. This was a playful event where serious issues were raised concerning the processes involved in dreaming up and making concrete a new reality, where working with clay operates as a discursive as well as aesthetic medium.
The ADP was in Newcastle from the 24th - 31st October.
