About your host

I am a writer, artist, theatre maker and community worker that was approached by a local Bristol historian to create a shadow puppet show that could bring to life the real interviews she had collected about the history of the Bristol docks from the perspective of the workers!! I also am a choir leader of a feminist sea shanty choir - The Full Moon Howlers - who will lead us all in singing our way…
