Sat June 11th Programme 


Tamsin Omond Speaker Environmentalist and Journalist followed by Q and A 

12 Midday Introduction by  Sasha Snow Bafta winning Film Maker

We know there’s a climate emergency but what does that mean we should do? What does a ‘better future’ look like and how do we get there?



1.30 Chai For All

Exciting and entertaining, Chai For All plays Old World Yiddish folk, New World Yiddish theatre songs and jazz-tinged klezmer. A magnificent musical journey from the haunted Eastern European shtetls, through the dimly-lit basement bars of tango-crazed Buenos Aires, to the vibrant neighbourhoods of swinging New York.

Impassioned female vocals lead the party, against a joyous backing of trumpet, guitar and percussion. With fantastic music, brilliant audience rapport and more than a touch of goodtime showbiz, this is a set guaranteed to raise the spirits.

Lineup: Marianna Moralis – vocals, David Mowat – trumpet, Knud Stüwe – guitar, Simon Leach – percussion
