New Dates Released: Crystal’s Vardo Tour for Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month

Crystal’s Vardo is a play that examines the impact of being bullied at school on a young Gypsy girl’s life. It also explores the rich history and culture of Gypsies and Travellers to raise awareness and improve understanding of the Travelling community.

‘What a powerful aid to understanding the rich heritage of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people, and a shocking reminder of the prejudice and persecution they have suffered through the ages – prejudice they sadly still face today….thank you to Friends Families and Travellers and to everyone behind this amazing, inspiring production.’

Pete West, Mayor of Brighton and Hove
