Red Ladder Theatre Company presents We’re Not Going Back, a hard hitting musical comedy about the 1984/85 miners’ strike.

75 Mines.

3 Sisters.

1 Cause.

(And a six-pack of Babycham)

2024 is the fortieth anniversary of the 1984/85 miners’ strike, a dispute still resonating today.

In this hard-hitting musical comedy, we follow the fortunes of three sisters determined to set up a branch of Women Against Pit Closures. We’re Not Going Back tackles the resilience of working communities, the make-and-mend fabric of family and the power of sticking two fingers up to a government hell-bent on destruction.

Written by ex-Chumbawamba founder member Boff Whalley, this musical will have you laughing and crying in equal measure.

This event was supported with a Culture Grant by Wakefield Council.

This show is at The Grove Hall in South Kirkby. Scroll down for showings at the Cluntergate Centre in Horbury.
