Travellers Tales DVD

The hidden history of Surrey's Gypsy and Traveller community

Travellers Tales DVDThe hidden heritage of Surrey's largest ethnic minority is uncovered in this new film celebrating the history and culture of Surrey's Gypsy and Traveller community.

Travellers' Tales is a series of 18 digital stories created by Gypsy and Traveller communities working with Romani journalist Jake Bowers. They celebrate the hidden contributions of Surrey's 10000 strong Gypsy and Traveller community.

From the Epsom Downs to the shores of the Camargue, these Travellers' Tales examine Gypsy culture from every angle, from poaching to travelling, from rapping to rabbiting and from horse-trotting to the religious Gypsy conventions and pilgrimages.

Together they provide a unique inside view on a culture that is often misrepresented and misunderstood.
