With International Human Rights Day coming up on

10th December, English Cabaret has been busy telling the story of European human rights in Dreams of Peace & Freedom, providing historical context to nearly 70 years of peaceful association with Europe.


The anniversaries of the Nuremberg Trials (75 years) and European Convention on Human Rights (70 years) coincide in 2020, and this year English Cabaret have been putting together a film about the birth of human rights in Europe following the Second World War, with their song cycle at its core. They are presently in the studio recording the soundtrack, so pop back for an early taster soon!
