Event description

Description

Doors: 7pm Concert: 7.30pm

This event will be an uplifting concert of poems and songs about the ‘Power of Words’, including some new poems and vocal arrangements, especially commissioned by Historyworks for marking Holocaust Memorial Day 2018. The poems written and performed by Michael Rosen challenge racism and prejudice against migrants and refugees today.

ReSound Acappella Choir led by Rowena Whitehead will share their favourite songs of hope, solidarity, celebration and connection, drawn from different cultural traditions, all sung in glorious resonant harmony. For more information visit: https://resoundcambridge.wordpress.com/

This event will be a fundraiser in aid of CamCRAG (Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group), a registered charity that sends regular convoys of volunteers with donations of clothing and other items to help refugees in Northern France and elsewhere. CamCRAG will have an information stall.

Hot Snacks and Drinks from 7pm including traditional Andean savoury empanadas (both veggie and meat) from the Vargas Brothers, and an Interval ‘Bring & Share’ cookies and cake table - chocolate cakes welcome! There will also be a fundraiser book stall for those purchasing books for Michael Rosen to sign.

To find out more about the charity called CamCRAG (Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group) go to their website here: https://camcrag.org.uk/

CamCRAG "We are a group of volunteers who live in and around Cambridge who work to help the refugees in Northern France and elsewhere in Europe. As well as sending regular convoys of aid and volunteers to the warehouse in Calais run by Help Refugees, we also organise donation collections, fundraising events and seek to raise awareness of the refugee crisis. The money we raise goes towards providing aid or supporting our convoys: We have no employees, and are entirely run by volunteers. Which means we always welcome some help, whether it’s joining us on a convoy to Calais, donating money, or giving your time in Cambridge"

Tickets £10. Discounts available for low income individuals. Please contact historyworkstv@gmail.com for details.
