Miners, Holiday Makers, Strikers, Bingo Hall Players: those seeking refuge, those demanding hope and those on the trail of fun…UNITE!A new play by Abi Zakarian | Featuring Derwent Brass
Derby Theatre will be transformed into the site of The Derbyshire Miners’ Holiday Camp in Skegness, where miners went to convalesce, and later to holiday, as it was turned into a pioneering holiday camp for Derbyshire miners and their families.
Take a trip through the decades as we follow the fortunes of the camp through the highs and lows of history; meeting a family across the generations, and exploring how time and change affects communities and individuals alike.
Expect Brass Bands, rousing speeches, entertainment and a whole load of bingo!
Written by award winning British-Armenian playwright Abi Zakarian who was born and raised in Derby.
