Common Salt

By Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer



Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Common Salt has been cancelled.

The event organisers will be in touch with all ticket holders to arrange refunds.

We sincerely apologise for any disappointment caused, and thank you for your understanding.




Common Salt is a performance around a table – a ‘show and tell’. It explores the colonial, geographical history of England and India taking an expansive and emotional time-travel, from the first Enclosure Act and the start of the East India Company in the 1600s, to 21st century narratives of trade, nature and culture.

Sue and Sheila activate insights into our shared past, laying out a ‘home museum’ of objects and stories; of the Great Hedge of India, of borders, and collections – all accompanied by original Shruti box laments.

Common Salt is a reckoning; the interconnectedness between history, empire, nature and memory is hidden in plain sight.


Thursday 26th March

8pm – 9.30pm

The performance starts at 8pm and lasts just over an hour. You are welcome to stay and talk to Sue and Sheila after the show.



Full price: £8

Concessions: £5 (students, over 60s and those in receipt of benefits)

Tickets are available to purchase here.
