The show draws on Matthew’s acclaimed book Human Cargo: Stories & Songs of Emigration, Slavery and Transportation.

This Newcastle performance partners with Action Foundation as part of the show’s Parallel Lives project. Action Foundation will be on hand to talk about their work. Wherever it performs, Human Cargo includes local stories and partners with a local refugee support group. Through Parallel Lives, Matthew’s shows have now linked with 50 different groups across Britain.Storyteller and singer Matthew Crampton’s recent show The Transports won Five Stars from The Guardian.
