Robin Grey and Rachel Rose Reid (above) from ‘Three Acres And A Cow’ will host a singing and poetry circle on land and housing rights and protest through the ages. Come and join in and maybe bring something to share too.
‘Three Acres And A Cow’ connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues of fracking and the housing crisis via the Enclosures, English Civil War, Irish Land League and Industrial Revolution, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of Britain in folk song, stories and poems.
Part TED talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part poetry slam, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations.
