It draws a compelling narrative through the history of England in folk song, stories and poems.
History, sing a-long & storytelling
The performance will include a history talk, folk club sing-a-long, poetry slam and storytelling session. Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations.
Paths Unseen project
Paths Unseen shows how poetry can be a shared sociable activity. Over the past 18 months performance poet Keely Mills and illustrator Jef Winter have engaged with many individuals and groups from across the local community enabling them to write, tell their own stories and share their work in their own voices.
Inspiration has also come from local folklore, encouraging museum audiences to consider art as a medium for rediscovering local history. Paths Unseen project has been funded by Arts Council England.
