Cotton Lords: An afternoon of poetry and song

19th August 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Come and join this wonderful afternoon of moving poetry and music inspired by the Lancashire Cotton Famine. This event was a depression in the textile industry of North West England in 1861.

This poetry project, led by Dr. Simon Rennie of the University of Exeter, will feature a talk about the significance of the poetry. Jennifer Reid will explore the broader context of Lancashire’s song and poetry, and the folk band Faustus will perform a selection of their songs inspired by the historic poems.

Enjoy a journey through history!
