Information:

In 2018, RRR wowed us with the first part of an epic that's not been told in England for 700 years. Please join us for the next part of this incredible lost story - you will be able to dive in whether or not you've heard the first part.

During the day, Rachel will be a guest of M Shed, talking about Silence as part of LGBT+ History Month: https://www.bristolmuseums.org.uk/m-shed/whats-on/lgbt-history-festival/

ABOUT RACHEL ROSE REID

RRR keeps oral tradition dust-free and fresh-faced from rock festivals to theatres, campfires to concert halls. Bridging between the worlds of traditional storytelling and spoken word, she has written and told stories for Billy Bragg, BBC Radio, Glastonbury Festival, and the London Symphony Orchestra.

"Queen of the new wave of storytellers" BBC Radio 3.

ABOUT 'SILENCE'

In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence.

Written around 1250 by Heldris of Cornwall, it was discovered in 1911 in an old English Manor House, in a box marked 'Old Papers, No Value' (under a few letters from King Henry VIII.)

The story follows a gender fluid (really) descendent of King Arthur thrown into a quest for empowerment and equality. It is packed with adventure, humour and conflicts that feel familiar to our modern ears.

In 1911 suffrage protests were at their explosive height, so the controversial manuscript was kept silent. But the story was made to be told. Now is the time to tell it.
