The Tangle of the Commons

March 1, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

£5 – £10

The Tangle of the Commons tells the story of the British landscape and our relationship with the wild things around us, seen and unseen. Who really owns this place – and what happens if humans push things too far?

Here are some of the old tales, laced with history, ecology and a hefty dose of the ridiculous, to provoke thought and inspiration about the land we usually take so much for granted. Through story, we will walk the islands of Britain with peasant farmers, dastardly robber kings, magical rivers, malevolent fairies and disgruntled wildlife, starting in the Dark Ages and watching our landscape change as we travel through history.

Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
