“An extraordinary portrait of a working class hero.” The Observer

Featuring songs from the original album alongside new material. Teesside folk trio The Young’uns perform a new, theatrical version of The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff.

This is the true story of one man’s journey from unemployment in Stockton on Tees, through the Hunger Marches of the 1930s, the mass trespass movement and the Battle of Cable Street, to fighting fascism in the Spanish Civil War.

In a timely, touching and often hilarious musical adventure, follow the footsteps of a working class hero who chose not to look the other way when the world needed his help, and took part in some of the most momentous events of the 1930s.

Please note: anyone attending will be required to show proof of a negative lateral flow test on entry to the event.
