Free! Hush Now Showcase Event

Sat 7 Oct 2023
5:00pm - 6:00pm | Ledbury Poetry House - Event has now taken place.

The Hush Now project gives voice to the unmarried mothers who were silenced and hidden away in Mother and Baby Homes across the UK for over a hundred years. First launched in 2019, Hush Now was created by Feral Productions, a Herefordshire based performance company that pioneers site-specific, multi-sensory productions.

Since its inauguration, Hush Now has extended to cover Homes in Dudley, Wolverhampton and neighbouring Worcestershire. Over the summer we held a series of creative workshops in response to our Worcestershire research and the fruits of those sessions will be shared in this free showcase. Our artistic team and workshop participants will describe how the women’s stories were uncovered and transformed into works of art through creative writing, music and embroidery. The event will conclude with the premiere screening of our new Hush Now Worcestershire song, Water Lily.’
