Cotton Town Chronicles is a folk song based presentation by Peter and Barbara Snape. With its multi-media format, the presentation provides an interesting overview of working life during the age when cotton and coal were king.
It is a journey in which key moments of social history provide the context for the song to take centre stage. And, each song tells a story – it’s Grease, Grit and Grime; Mills, Mines and Machinery; poverty, struggle, love, humanity and the ability to look on the bright side of life. It is a look at Lancashire Life during this time period through a different lens. It’s a social history synopsis.
Presentation times can be varied to suit differing needs.
