Come along on Saturday 22nd March for an evening at the Bridewell theatre to see a production of the WW1 drama; 'The Accrington Pals'.

About the play
Accrington was the smallest town in England to raise a volunteer Pals Brigade to fight in World War I and this poignant play centres on the fate of this tight community.

Some 720 men volunteered to form the Accrington Pals, 583 were killed, wounded or reported missing within half an hour of the Battle of Serre in 1916. The brutality of the men's experience on the battlefield is shown alongside the harsh realities of life for the women left behind.

Mothers, wives, daughters and lovers learn to rely on each other for support. Adjusting to working life without men, they find the courage to challenge the authorities for the truth about their men's fate.

A No-Man's Land for everyone, at home as well as on the battlefield.

The play lasts about 2 hours.

It starts at 7:30pm, but we are meeting beforehand from 6:45pm in the Albion Pub (which is next door to the theatre) for a drink - in the upstairs bar.
