The Accrington Pals



The Accrington Pals is another superb WW1 themed play written by Peter Whelan in 1982.  It tells the story about the 700 man strong, Accrington battalion, (11th East Lancashire regiment) and the attack on Serre on 1st July 1916.

This authentic turn of the century piece contrasts life on the front line at the Battle of the Somme with the lives of the women left behind in Accrington, Lancashire.

Silsoe Drama have just completed an excellent production of this moving play, directed by Rachel Hickey, and we are delighted that some of our uniforms and period costumes have been employed for the WW1 atmospheric scenes.
