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 7pm-9pm 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.

‘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.
