A Punk National Anthem For England!
On Wednesday 24th May, comedian Charlie George and artist Amartey Golding launched Whose Anthem Is It Anyway? to a sold out audience at Ironworks, as part of Brighton Festival 2023.
A funny and warm look at the impossible situation of creating one song for an entire nation, Whose Anthem Is It Anyway? also acts as a vehicle to ask how English people feel about themselves and their nation, grappling with that indefinable and elusive thing that makes England ‘England’.
Brighton came up with the goods, kicking off the project with an ode to ducks, t-shirt tans and the nhs - the room came together for a brief beautiful sing-a-long finale: a punk rock anthem for the ages, or at least, just for one night.
Join in on the fun and sing along to our new (unofficial) English National Anthem!
