Ordsall Live and Local

Ordsall Live & Local presents Phil Okwedy on Friday 24th November in Ordsall Parish Hall in a moving, funny and warm-hearted performance.

In ‘The Gods Are All Here’, there is captivating storytelling which beautifully weaves myth, song, folktales and legends of Africa with an astonishing personal story that uncovers Phil’s experiences of growing up as a child of dual heritage in 1960s’ and 70s’ Wales.

Sparked by the discovery of a series of letters from his father in Nigeria to his mother in Wales, Phil explores equality, freedom, racism, family and growing up without your birth parents, in an enthralling performance.

When you were a child, did you consider your parents to be Gods and when was the moment you realised maybe they were not?
The event is at Ordsall Parish Hall, Church Lane, Ordsall, Retford DN22 7TU. There is a licensed bar, refreshments and disabled parking.

Tickets cost £15.00 (including refreshments) from Peter and Shirley Thomas on 01777 706433 or 07951 253343, or email thomas_peterf@hotmail.com.
