A night out with a difference is being held down at The Bonded Warehouse on Friday 15th November at 7.30pm – tickets bookable direct from Brian Langtry only please on the advertised number or simply turn up on the door.

“Coal and Canals” is an exciting new production using film, narration and songs performed by the five piece group “The Zouch Band”. It tells the stories, heritage, history and culture of these two seminal industries documented by complementary song and spoken word – how they were born, developed and died.

The show is entirely self contained, being performed with verve, energy and emotion involving the audience in the  unfolding important story lines. It is performed by playwright, director and film-maker, Brain Langtry, founder and long time member of one of the Black Country’s  favourite “folkies” Giggetty.

Tickets £10 – to reserve you place at what is likely to be a popular show call Brian directly on 01530 416251 or buy them on the door.
