A TRAVELLING troubadour and champion for social justice is to hold a concert in Redditch.

Garth Hewitt, who has spent 40 years fighting poverty, deprivation and disaster, will be playing The Bridge Church on Evesham Road, Headless Cross, on Saturday, September 30 at 7.30pm.

Until recently Garth has been the Guild Vicar of All Hallows on the Wall in the City of London – a centre for organisations involved in issues of justice and art.

In 2006 he was given special accreditation by the House of Poets in Ramallah, West Bank for his ‘positive attitude towards the Palestinian people and their struggle towards freedom and justice’.

He is a Patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and in 2007 Garth was given an award by the British relief and development agency Interpal for his ‘longstanding commitment to the Palestinian people through both the relief and awareness work done by his charity, the Amos Trust.

The award also recognised his personal commitment through songs and telling the stories of ordinary Palestinians and their daily struggles.

He’s also an honorary Canon of St George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem.

Garth has issued countless LPs, CDs and singles and has been a tireless campaigner calling for people of all faiths to fight for social justice.

Tickets for the gig are just £10 for adults and £7 for concessions, available from Maureen Brown on 01527 542281

Refreshments during the interval are included in the ticket price.
