Local and Live presents: Viscounts and Chicken Stubbers, with Dr Geoffrey Mead

The ownership of land, and the consequences of that, have a major impact on communities and their environment. Geoffrey’s talk looks at two contrasting communities in Sussex, but which could be anywhere in Britain, to show how these differences manifest themselves.

Patterns of landownership, agriculture, working practices, religious life and even marriage distance and age all contribute to community variety. By studying communities in the Sussex Downlands and High Weald, their physical landscapes and their human landscapes we can better understand why communities so close to each other can be so at variance.

Part of the Local and Live mini-festival, a joint initiative between Ropetackle Arts Centre and Shoreham Wordfest, to celebrate the creativity of local writers, musicians, actors and poets and the return to live performance.

LOCAL AND LIVE FESTIVAL PASS: Enjoy 10 events* for just £60. Discount applied at the checkout.  *Excludes: The Noise Next Door, The Snow Queen and Frank Greene Band and The Beta Rays.
