Join us for a powerful evening mixing the spoken word with folk music telling historic tales of hardship, slavery and transportation; echoing modern trafficking and emigration issues.
- Booking essential
Join Matthew Crampton, storyteller, writer and singer as he tells true tales of emigration, slavery and transportation. He’ll weave in Suffolk stories as he gives voice to those taken in distress across the seas - including Lavenham’s Ann Baker and Mendham’s Henry Kable, two youngsters exiled cruelly to New South Wales. ‘A compelling storyteller’ (five stars, The Guardian), Matthew will draw on his book Human Cargo – and sing some folksongs too.
