Stories of Sanctuary is an emotive and poignant show of original songs written and performed by people seeking sanctuary in County Durham, and it's coming on tour to Sheffield this spring.
The songs were written as part of a community songwriting project and draw on Durham’s rich history of offering sanctuary – from the arrival of an exiled monastic community seeking sanctuary from the Vikings to modern stories of fleeing civil war in Syria.
The performance features the Sanctuary Seekers Choir, the National Syrian Orchestra’s Raghad Haddad and project curator and singer-songwriter Sam Slatcher.
Stories of Sanctuary warmly invites you into a project that inspired infectious friendships as well as deeply beautiful songs.
