'Hope Shortens all Journies'

St Michael Church, Coxwold

General event

A welcome return visit to St Michael's Church, Coxwold by Coope, Boyes and Simpson where they will perform a selection of songs traditional and contemporary, set against the story of Laurence Sterne's relationship with Eliza Draper. 

Hope Shortens all Journies tells the story of an affair of the heart, a series of intimate letters, a locket and a sea voyage from England to India in 1767.  This collaboration between the Laurence Sterne Trust, Georgina Boyes and the group continues an exploration into music and text that resulted in Songs of Freedom and Oppression.  

The exhibition Eliza Draper : Absent Presence will be open in the gallery at Shandy Hall before the concert.

Concert begins at 7.30pm (unreserved seating).

Tickets £10.00 per person in advance. Book now.

Rum and ginger wine will be served in the interval.

Part of the Precious Cargo exhibition.
