Every Memory holds a truth.

Everyone knows the sacred grass of the new Saints RLFC stadium, but do you know what came before?

Set against the backdrop of St Helens life in the late 19th Century, ‘A Day in the Life of a Bottlehand’ digs beneath the earth to celebrate the lives, stories and histories (some real and some imagined) of the people who worked in the largest glass bottle-making factory in the world.

The Smiths Ltd
Date: 8th September 2018
Details:  The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig in Manchester to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.

“Brilliant Smiths tribute band, they are amazing!” – Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets)

“The Smiths Ltd are a class act. They are indistinguishable from The Smiths.” – North West End

“I may have missed The Smiths the first time around, but after last night’s show I felt that I was really there back in 1983!” – The Hype Media.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony.

Doors: 7:30pm

Abigail's Party
Date: 13th September 2018
Details:  Doors: 7.00pm / Onstage: 7.30pm

Let us take you back to a spring evening in April 1977: Abba are number one in the charts, Red Rum wins the Grand National for the third time, the Queen begins her Silver Jubilee celebrations and 15-year old Abigail throws a party. To escape the loud music and teenage angst Abigail’s mum, Susan takes refuge with Beverly and Laurence, her middle-class neighbours. As the gin and tonic and Bacardi and coke flows, good-will, clichés and small-talk turn into quarrels, squabbles and chaos as tensions rise and the Suburbia dream is shattered.

From the pen of Mike Leigh Abigail’s Party will take you to a simpler time and have you chuckling into your Pina Colada.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

£12
