As part of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival, tenor Norbert Meyn, director of the Music, Migration and Mobility project giving a talk/recital about What a Life!, a satirical revue devised by internees and held in Douglas on the Isle of Man in 1940.

This June sees the timely release of the first public edition of Hans Gál’s score for the revue. He will then be joined by Sue Lukes, founder of Music in Detention  and herself the daughter of a Jewish refugee from Nazism, to talk about contemporary equivalents of internment and the creative outputs of people held in UK detention centres now.
