3 Acres & a Cow / Evening Social & Dinner |

Tuesday Night Social

We’re delighted to announce that we will be hosting a performance of the excellent ‘Three Acres and a Cow’ at this year’s CTRLshift. The performance will take place at The Edge Centre from 7.15pm-9.15pm on Tuesday 27th March.

This will be preceded by food and drinks at the in-house Postcode Coffee House and a chance to all informally meet each other and enjoy the beginning of this landmark summit.

Meals need to be ordered in advance and cost £10, to be paid on the day. To order food, please use the form here. All meals must be ordered by 22nd March.

The menu options are:

  • Luxury Beef Hotpot with Homemade Pickled Red Cabbage, Pastry Top, Rustic Bread and Brown Sauce
  • Luxury Chilli Con Carne with Long Grain Rice and Bowls of Sour Cream and Rustic Bread
  • Luxury Italian Beef Lasagne. Served with sliced Ciabatta Bread
  • Luxury Italian Vegetable Lasagne. Served with Ciabatta Bread & tossed salad (V)
  • Forest Mushroom Risotto with Asparagus & Soft Herbs (vegan/GF)

‘Three Acres And A Cow’ connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues like fracking, the housing crisis and food sovereignty movement via the Enclosures, English Civil War, Irish Land League and Industrial Revolution, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of Britain in folk song, stories and poems.

Part TED talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part poetry slam, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations.

Performed by Robin Grey of the Land Justice Network with support from guest artists.
