On Saturday 17th September at the Chesterfield Friends Meeting House at 7.00 pm (doors open 6.30 pm) there will be a performance of ‘A People’s History in Song’, performed by the Nottingham Clarion Choir,
Last year the Nottingham Clarion Choir performed at ‘The Grand Tour’ Exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary. Paintings, sculpture and furniture from Chatsworth House reflected the wealth, influence and culture of one of England’s leading aristocratic families.
In response the Clarion Choir told the story of the poor and powerless, through their own voices and songs, as they fought for the right of access to the land, for a fair wage and bread for their families, and for their voice to be heard through the right to vote. This is their story.
Please note that there is almost no space in the Friends’ Meeting House car park, so attendees will need to park on the two roads next to the building, or in the large car park just a couple of hundred yards nearer town, on the opposite side of the road.
