Angeline Morrison and the Sorrow Songs

18 October

Angeline Morrison is on tour and celebrating the release of her new album Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of Black British Experience. The UK’s historic Black presence is evidenced but not well known, difficult to find in the UK’S existing body of folk songs but Angeline merges the two beautifully!


Phil Okwedy: The Gods Are All Here

A compelling, lyrical and warm, one-man performance from first-class storyteller Phil Okwedy. Exploring equality, freedom, racism, family and growing up without your birth parents, The Gods Are All Here is both timeless and very much a story of now.

'A Figure of Speech' is a story of the thrills, peculiarities, cringes and revelations of legally taking your clothes off in front of rooms of people who want to draw you.


Coming soon...
