Who should attend?

Anyone is welcome to attend this open event which forms part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Being Human festival.

What is the event about?

Songs and ballads form a unique connection between the past and the world in which we now live. Engagement with popular songs, whether by singing or listening, is an important part of life today, just as it was in the past, and music forms a central element in the cultural legacy we leave for future generations.

Work and play, war and peace, love and loss, crime and punishment - all these aspects of human existence are preserved in the songs people sang as part of their daily lives.

Come and join us as we uncover the experiences of the men and women of the past!
