Three Acres and a Cow

September 18, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are excited to welcome this show back with a romp through history and a nosey around our own acres and cows too.

‘Three Acres And A Cow’ is a history of land rights and protest in folk song and story. The 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, Irish Land League 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.

Featuring Katherine Hallewell and Robin Grey, see for more information.

Family friendly show starts at 3pm and will finish around 5pm with one interval. There will be a tour around the estate and farm after with tea, cake and ale.
