The Ballad of the Travelling People
‘The Ballad of the Travelling People’, created by the pioneering radio producer Charles Parker alongside folk musicians Peggy Seeger and Ewan MacColl in 1964, was the eighth of a ground-breaking series of BBC Radio Ballads that explored the lives of ordinary working people.
An ABC for Travellers
If you work with young children, ‘An ABC for Travellers’ is a perfect resource for helping young Gypsies and Travellers learn the alphabet.

Atching Tan: an educational journey into the world of Gypsies, Romanies, and Travellers
It has been developed in conjunction with Travellers resident across East Anglia, as well as the expertise of the Traveller Education teams in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. We think that this means it offers the best of both worlds: it covers issues that are important to Travellers, but they are presented in a way that ties into the school curriculum.
Travellers’ Times – This Gypsy, Roma and Traveller led publication is a great way to hear and share the voices of members of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
