Nick Hennessey & Hugh Lupton – The Liberty Tree – Robin Hood & Other English RadicalsEvent Website
To live outside the law you must be honest
For over 600 years stories of Robin Hood have held sway in the English imagination. With Little John, Will Scarlet, Much the miller’s son, Friar Tuck and the rest of the Merry Fellowship, Robin Hood inhabits a place in the leafy shadows of our minds – somewhere where it’s always high summer, where venison is always being roasted, where tyranny rides roughshod over the green freedoms of England and where the wrongs and injustices of the world are mended by subversion and trickery.
Two of Britain’s leading storytellers, Hugh Lupton and Nick Hennessey, sing and tell their way deep into the secret, dappled heart of Sherwood and at the same time, tell the true and harsher histories of English dissenters, tricksters and radicals. Mischievous, poignant and radical, this is storytelling at its best.
