Songs from the Shipyard

by | 8 May 2019 | Performing Arts, Retford

Peacock Angell Trio, with a guest on keys, present songs from the Belfast shipyards, based on the poetry of Northern Irish working class poet and dramatist Thomas Carnduff, at Ordsall Parish Hall on Saturday 11th May at 7.30pm.
Peacock Angell perform original music settings of Carnduff’s poems interwoven with biographical excerpts and giving fascinating insights into the world of early 20th century Belfast life. A truly captivating mix of historical, political and personal.

Peacock Angell are Sid Peacock and Ruth Angell. Born in 1886, Carnduff did many unskilled jobs including working in the Belfast shipyards which provided the inspiration for his poetry. His lyrical writing reflects his love of Belfast and its people.

This show is the last in the 2018/19 Village Ventures performances in Ordsall. Other shows will be coming for the next season, with the addition of a local ukelele band at a more informal night on 5th July.

Tickets are available from Peter on 01777 706433 or Alison on 01777 700220 and are priced at £12.50 for adults and £6.50 for under 16s, and this includes hot food in the interval. There is a licensed bar with a range of wines, beers and soft drinks. The previous two shows have sold out ahead of the night so early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.
