Remembering Robeson

THE extraordinary life of Paul Robeson, the actor, singer and civil rights campaigner (pictured, top of page), will be told on Friday, February 4 (7.30pm start) at Peebles’ Eastgate Theatre.

The play, Call Mr Robeson, shows how his radical politics took him from world famous performer to the mis-remembered figure he is today.

The performance includes songs that made him famous sung by Tayo Aluko.

Tickets are £12 (£10) – phone 01721 725777.
