Cotton Town Chronicles

The presentation was extremely enjoyable – professional and passionate performers using powerful, interesting and varied songs.

Cotton Town Chronicles is a folk song-based presentation which 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.
