About this Event

Refugee Tales is rooted in the work of charity ‘Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group’ that supports people held in immigration detention. Refugee Tales 2020 calls for ‘A Future without Detention.’

On 3, 4, 5 July we have a full programme of events: readings, talks, film, tales and music. The online event on July 3rd is the first of three evening events with tales and music in solidarity with those who have been indefinitely detained.


  • Novelist, Patrick Gale is host for the evening.
  • Music is provided by bass player Liran Donin and ‘1000 Boats’. Hear their distinctive powerhouse groove in a new piece composed for Refugee Tales that will have it’s premiere.
  • Christy Lefteri (author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo) will read a new tale.
  • Join this free evening event at 7pm.
  • Why not also book to join us on 4th and 5th July?

*During the three days of Refugee Tales 2020 some people will choose to walk with us in solidarity according to country guidance at the time. It may be that where you are in the world you can only walk indoors at home, in your locality alone or in a small socially distanced group. Please see our website www.refugeetales.org for details of all events over the three days.
