Perth Festival of the Arts presents

Three time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners The Young'uns present a new and unique piece of modern folk theatre. The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff is the story of one man's adventure from begging on the streets in the north of England to fighting fascism in the Spanish Civil War, taking in the Hunger Marches and the Battle of Cable Street.

With their trademark harmony, honesty and humour, the Teeside trio bring together 16 specially-composed songs, spoken word, striking imagery and the real recorded voice of Johnny himself to tell a remarkable human story, oozing with modern relevance.

Running time approx. 1 hour 50 minutes, including interval.
