Three Acres And A Cow is a history of land rights and protest in folk song and story. Our show connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues like the housing crisis, reparations, climate breakdown and food sovereignty via the Enclosures, English Civil War and Industrial Revolution, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of England in folk song, stories and poems. Part TED talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations. See http://threeacresandacow.co.uk/ for more information.
“I think about this show all the time. It has totally changed the way I think about colonialism, direct action and English nationalism. Thinking about it today, 4 years after seeing the show, it’s clear it was a life changing event for me.” Monique
“The history lesson I’ve always wanted. Thank you for a very entertaining/life changing evening. I’ll be looking at the land and listening to folk songs in a very different way” Emily
