‘Tomorrow 125’ is a project exploring how the Garden City idea can help us construct a pathway to a hopeful future based on a fairer society. Through a three-year programme of collaborative projects, events and interventions, Tomorrow 125 will culminate in 2023 with the development of a roadmap of practical actions.

Land of Promise’ is a words and music presentation journeying through three and a half centuries of radical thought, writing, and song about the connection between art, social justice and the living environment. Through the words of radical thinkers and activists spanning William Morris and Edward Carpenter to Bruce Springsteen and Benjamin Zephaniah, Land of Promise explores that perpetual but urgent question at a time of global crises – ‘How are we going to live?

As part of the ‘Tomorrow 125’ project, the TCPA is holding three performances of ‘Land of Promise’ over the autumn, in London, Norwich and Hull – to share learning from the past and present and gather insight from audiences to feed into the final outputs of the project – a framework for practical action in 2023.

The Hostry Festival is an annual cultural arts festival celebrating the arts and culture of Norfolk. This performance of Land of Promise at the festival is brought to you by the TCPA and musicians Chris Ellis and Rosie Toll with guest readers: Robin Watson, Rebecca Chapman, Paul Jackson and Clare Jackson.

The TCPA is grateful to the Lady Margaret Paterson Osborn Trust for supporting the Tomorrow: 125 project and this performance.
