Tom Kitching ‘Where There’s Brass’
Jun 16 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Tom Kitching ‘Where There’s Brass’  Sunday 16th 2024 at Harwich Arts & Heritage Centre Main Road Harwich, Essex CO12 4AJ. 2PM – 4PM

Author and musician Tom Kitching launches his new book and album, ‘Where There’s Brass’, with a special storytelling and music concert tour.

Documenting six months living in the London waterways community, making the long journey across England from Manchester on a traditional narrowboat built in 1937, ‘Where There’s Brass’ tells the story of the contemporary London water ways; a floating slum at worst, a bohemian, alternative, vibrant community at best.
