Mick Martin – It’s in the Blood

Saturday, 21 October 2017

Book online

Suitable for: Age 14+

For this event we have partnered Eventbrite for our ticket bookings


We are proud to showcase Mick Martin’s brand new play exploring the people’s abiding love affair with our great northern game – rugby league. Stories drawn from players and fans alike celebrate its enduring appeal in terms of family and community. Births, deaths, the stuff of life all lived in relation to the game and the chilly afternoons that come with it!! Using film and live music this very funny but heartfelt piece of verbatim theatre looks at rugby in terms of its social, human and emotional bonds, its role in the shared history of town and place, and why it is so much more than just a game…

Runding raised the The National Lottery and awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
