In December 2018 we will be meeting on Dec 13th, as the 4th Thursday is in the Christmas holiday period.
Just before Christmas the centre of York gets absolutely jammed and there is relatively little interest in our stall, so we will take a break from that for 3 weeks – there will be no stall on Dec 15th, 22nd or 29th.
We will restart the stall on Saturday 5th January.
The August meeting of our branch will be held on Thursday 30th August, the 5th Thursday in the month, not 23rd as you might have expected.
Longing, Belonging and Palestine, Saturday 16th June at 7.30pm, Quaker Meeting House, Friargate, York, YO1 9RL
A story in music and song of Human – Earth relationships through the eyes of Palestinians living under Occupation.
A collaboration between members of Dar Al Musika Beit Sahour and Chai For All Bristol who perform with guest singer & bağlama player Zaid Hilal.
Fired up from their recent UK and Palestine tour of the Arts Council-funded ‘Longing Belonging and Balfour’ show Chai For All, a band that uniquely blends Jewish and Arabic music, now illuminate Palestinians’ experience of The Land. Researched in the Occupied Territories, their stories are accompanied by ravishing Palestinian music, visuals and dance. In the after-show discussion audiences will be invited to consider inspiring UK examples of human attachment to beloved natural locations defying vandal-developers.
Palestinian crafts and produce will be on display, and a recently returned EAPPI volunteeer will also be with us, to discuss her experiences working alongside Palestinians.
Tickets: £9 waged £7 concessions
also available at Visit York, Museum Street, York
There will be no stall on 16th, 23rd or 30th December, but we will restart the first Saturday of the new year, January 6th.
