Thursday 23rd June
Press-ganged into the navy at nineteen, flogged for desertion miles away from the girl he loves, John Newton feels he has nothing to live for.
Making his way into the harsh world of the eighteenth century transatlantic slave trade, he climbs up through the ranks to slave ship captain.
He is a man without hope, making enemies of all he meets. Then one stormy night, with his ship going down, he faces certain death….and nothing is the same again.
The incredible life story of the creator of one of the most popular hymns in history, Amazing Grace, brought to life by Saltmine Creative.
