Hamish Henderson was a war hero, song writer and political activist. His songs include that great anthem to peace and the equality of all people : “Freedom Come All Ye”.

The film from 1989 charts Henderson’s life from his childhood in an orphanage, his studies at Cambridge University, his socialism and fight against fascism to his work as a collector of Scottish and Gaelic songs and poetry which supplied the ammunition for the folk revival and helped establish the School of Scottish Studies, the vital repository of Scottish culture.

 

Tickets £5 are available at the door
