Searching for “The Travelling People”

Rural Media publishes The Travellers’ Times bringing the latest news, features & information for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people.

Inspired by an article in the Travellers’ Times by Traveller writer, poet and author Damian le Bas and with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Charles Parker Archive Trust, they have taken Damian on a journey to re-visit the people and places Parker, Seeger and MacColl connected with more than 50 years ago to create a new ballad for the modern Traveller and a documentary about the journey – click here for the trailer.

The full documentary will premier at The Courtyard, Hereford on Monday 26th February – more info here, or email Rural Media to buy the DVD and booklet for £10.00 including post & packing.

Rural Media hope this work will inspire a whole new generation of young Gypsies and Travellers to embrace their heritage and bring their unique culture to the wider world. Read about the whole project here.
