Songs of Rebellion Event

Join us at the Museum of Cornish Life in Helston on Saturday 20th July at 2pm to celebrate the culmination of the Rebellious Sounds Archive NLHF funded project with a performance by The Ingleheart Singers and The Suitcase Singers of 6 original songs inspired by real stories of women’s activism contained within the archive.

Songwriters Jaime Lock, Lande Hekt and Louise Jordan have been working with Composer and Choir Leader Claire Ingleheart over the last few months to create the 6 songs that you will hear on the day, covering themes such as the climate crisis, gender critical activism and domestic abuse support.

The performance will be held in the unique space of the Museum of Cornish Life’s drill hall, with singing interspersed with talk from Claire and the songwriters about their inspiration and Project Coordinator Carmen Talbot on the archive stories themselves.

Light refreshments will be available.
