The Real Reasons We Drink is an experiment in bringing local history to life.
In a performance curated and presented by its regulars, a pub will become the setting and the subject of a pointedly personal, entirely subjective presentation of its own history – for one night only.
The Ranelagh pub in Bounds Green, North London is the social centre of its community. It’s been the spontaneous pint, the all-nighter, the first date, the hair of the dog and the unofficial babysitter since 1861.
Since May, Travelling Tent have been collecting interviews with The Ranelagh’s customers and former staff, combining their experiences with archival research and original music to create a live event shaped by its participants and unique to its location.
The Real Reasons We Drink is part of The Ranelagh Story Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Suitable for ages 18+
