Human Cargo: Songs and stories of trafficking and transportation.

The world’s oceans have long teemed with ships bearing humans in distress.

Human Cargo traces paths through slavery, emigration, the highland clearances and convict transportation. This new show blends first-hand accounts with traditional folk songs and shanties, plus a few modern songs. 

A dark but invigorating evening, with plenty of opportunities to join the singing.

A special theatrical evening.

Written and presented by Matthew Crampton with Chris Hayes, Daisy Johnson & Jan North, aka The London Lubbers.

Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
