In the run up to November 2020

December 2018 - November 2020

We are

Sharing our story across a range of media platforms

to inspire reflection, encourage debate and

prompt sharing.


Ours is a family story about our human rights hero.

We want others to tell us about theirs.


We know the issues raised by our family history are topical, so via social media @EnglishCabaret,

throughout our project, we have been responding to current events through the prism of our story,

to further the values that are embedded within it.

We now also tweet regularly @OfficialTHINT


We celebrate parliamentarians and politicians

who breathe life into manufactured politics;


we welcome lively interventions from others

outside the political world;


salute human rights heroes in advance of

our outreach search for many more,


and will continue to relate events as they happen.



August - November 2020
