Lost Voices from the North East (25th November)

Listen in to echoes from the past, when All Hallows’ Eve struck fear in people’s souls!

Join the Records of Early English Drama North East team for Lost Voices, a unique event taking place on 25th November at 15.30-16.30 in Durham’s Palace Green Concert Hall.

‘Lost voices’ retrieves and presents voices, melodies, and popular traditions in the North-East, from Anglo-Saxon to Victorian times. The show includes songs which inspired Stevie Smith, Walter Scott, and Dylan Thomas, haunting soul dirges, fire-and-brimstone preaching by Puritans, dances for the dead, worm ballads, and silent creatures of the night. With Hector Sequera, Barbara Ravelhofer, musicians, singers, a dragon, and a wild horse.

No booking required, but you can join the Facebook event to let us know you’re coming.

This event forms part of the nationwide Being Human Festival. There will be other events at Durham as part of this, including a medieval food tasting and a free-diving film night.
