The young men of Accrington raise a Pals Volunteer Brigade in 1914, one of the smallest towns in England to do so. The play charts the fortunes of a close-knit community facing a momentous and horrific reality and charts how the lives of all those caught up in this event are changed for ever. This is an epic and deeply moving play.
NB — the play does contain strong language and nudity

For a moment I was taken aback. Had the Co-op been declared a risk...

During lockdown I started to run and in true Forrest Gump style I've not stopped. It started with Couch to 5K and then I was inspired by an interview with Brendan Foster on Radio 5 Live to convert this to a half marathon. For obvious reasons the Great North Run will be happening virtually with many people participating globally using an app on their phone.I'll be...
