‘Three Acres And A Cow’ connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues like fracking, the housing crisis and land reform movement via the Enclosures, English Civil War, Highland Clearances, 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.

Featuring Robin Grey, Tim Ralphs and Naomi Wilkins, see http://threeacresandacow.co.uk/ for more information.
