The Accrington Pals

Event image

By Peter Whelan

On the eve of the First World War the young men of Accrington hear Kitchener’s all for a New Army and become the smallest town in England to raise a Pals Volunteer Brigade. When they arrive in France, the brutal reality of the trenches is beyond anything they were prepared for. And back home amongst the women they leave behind – their mothers, wives, daughters, lovers – nothing can ever be the same again.  

Join us to commemorate the centenary of the Great War with this exceptional play about ordinary people in extraordinary times.
