Three acres and a cow

Wednesday 25 November, 7:30pm - 10:00pm
Cecil Sharp House, London

A history of land rights and protest in folk song and story featuring Robin
Grey, Rachel Rose Reid and special guests.

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 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.
