On Friday 21 June, Stories of Sanctuary comes to Ripon Cathedral!

Stories of Sanctuary is a touring performance piece of refugee stories and songs run by Citizen Songwriters. It began in the city of Durham in 2018. Since its inception, Stories of Sanctuary has been performed across the country over 15 times, from Sunderland to Southampton.

An emotive and poignant show of original songs written and performed by those with experience of seeking sanctuary, linking the past with the present. Drawing on the North East’s rich history of offering sanctuary – from the arrival of an exiled monastic community seeking sanctuary from the Vikings to modern stories of fleeing the civil war in Syria – Stories of Sanctuary warmly invites you into the project that inspired infectious friendships as well as deeply beautiful songs.

The project was rated 9/10 at its sold-out premiere at Durham Cathedral in October 2018 and has been to Sheffield, Hull, Leicester and Birmingham.

Tickets are £12 on the door or £12 plus booking fee via Eventbrite.
