Bonny Sartin, member of the folk group, The Yetties, and a great favourite with local audiences, returns to Dorset County Museum on 4th September this year.
One of Bonny’s ancestors, Edmund Sartin, took his family from Corscombe to New Zealand in 1840. They were on the very first ship to go to the wild and desolate area of Taranaki in North Island.
This is a story of poverty, pestilence, con men, war, and gold fever. Bonny presents it in his characteristic style with plenty of rousing music and song. This is sure to be a popular event so tickets should be booked in good time. The ticket price of £9.00 includes a glass of wine or cider and a piece of homemade Dorset apple cake.
Tickets available now from the Museum Shop on 01305 756827 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bonny Sartin’s talk takes place on Wednesday 4th September at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7.00pm.
