Off With Their Heads!

21 Jun 2016 / Kent


Date: 21 Jun 2016

Details: 6.30pm

Location: Leaving from Canterbury Cathedral



Run by: Vivien Ellis

Further information:

A walk with singing.  As condemned prisoners began their route through Canterbury to execution at Oaten Hill in Renaissance times, the procession around them was full of song. This event recreates their journey to death, inviting you to hear and sing ballads of execution along the way. Leaving from the Cathedral at 6.30pm.

NVPN member Vivien Ellis will lead the ballad singing. Despite their poignant themes, these songs are an amazing way to engage with the past. If you live locally, come along and sing! If you would like to hear the tunes in advance, Vivien will be pleased to send recordings:

Part of A Festival of Ideas/Questions of Space, a partnership between Canterbury Cathedral and The University of Kent, 20th & 21st June.
