The stories of a life at sea told by a Hull trawler skipper Jim Williams are brought to life on stage. Swinging the Lamp is a tribute “in words and song” written and performed by Beverley actor, Gordon Meredith about his friend Jim.
Jim fished the Arctic seas at the height of Hull’s fishing industry and was at sea when the triple trawler tragedy happened 50 years ago in 1968.
Swinging the Lamp is part story-telling, part theatre and part folk music. It evokes life in the fishing communities of Hull and Grimsby.
