Event Information

Through rousing traditional songs and moving ballads, Townsend Theatre Productions reveal the story of the women chainmakers of Cradley Heath in the West Midlands.

In 1910 they began a successful ten-week strike, led by the charismatic union campaigner Mary Macarthur, to more than double their earnings and establish the principle of a national minimum wage.

A powerful story, powerfully told
