    ‘When I go back those days in my head, it’s to that pit and the fun I had with a bunch of old men singing songs.’

    It’s the Summer of 1962. The hard-working, hard-drinking members of the Edlington Miners’ Glee Club are preparing for their local gala. But as times change, they realise that the ‘good old days’ may not last forever.

    A poignant and hilarious comedy featuring hit songs, Richard Cameron’s renowned play celebrates the shared experiences and close bonds between a group of unlikely friends.
