“They want to move us to Manchester, Hastings or Birmingham, but, like, there are loads of homes. I mean, go down every single street and you’d at least see one boarded up property. They’re sitting right here.”
Land of the Three Towers tells the story of the Focus E15 Open House Occupation of empty council houses on Carpenters Estate last September. Made by those who experienced it first-hand, this playful performance is part of a weekend of rousing workshops and discussions taking place in a community space on Carpenters Estate. This performance is a celebration of the housing struggle and will immerse you in a truly historical and extraordinary moment in the fight for decent housing. Bring some food, bring your kids, bring your curiosity and bring your fight. Let us make you a cuppa and take you on a tale through the Land of the Three Towers, and beyond…
Followed by Music from some musicians involved in the Occupation and housing movement.
