Human Cargo with Matthew Crampton

Join Matthew Crampton, storyteller, writer and singer as he tells true tales of emigration, slavery and transportation. He’ll weave in Suffolk stories as he gives voice to those taken in distress across the seas – including Lavenham’s Ann Baker and Mendham’s Henry Kable, two youngsters exiled cruelly to New South Wales.

‘A compelling storyteller’ (five stars, The Guardian), Matthew will draw on his book Human Cargo – and sing some folksongs too.

There are two shows – Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September 19.30-21.15 pm.

Tickets are £15 and can be bought from the website


or by phone (03442 491895),
