Sancho & Me: For one night only – Lyric Hammersmith

22 & 23 February 2024

Following the success of For the Culture – Celebrations of Blackness Festival in 2022, the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre today announces brand new events taking place in Spring. For the Culture is a programme of work that champions and celebrates Black British artists, activists and thinkers within the UK.

Acclaimed actor and author Paterson Joseph, tells the extraordinary story of an unlikely hero, Charles Ignatius Sancho, who was born on a slave ship on the Atlantic Ocean in 1729, but yet became a writer, composer, shopkeeper and respected ‘man of letters’ in 18th century London becoming the first man of African Heritage to vote in Britain.

Part-biography and part-dramatized readings from Paterson’s acclaimed novel ‘The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho’, Sancho & Me is an unmissable evening of storytelling with themes intersecting with Paterson’s own story of being Black and British.
