Event Details

Fresh from a three day, 50 mile walk across the Pennines, carrying a replica of the Skelmanthorpe flag from its home village, Commoners Choir and Shepley Singers from Yorkshire and SHE Choir, Open Voices and WAST (Women Asylum Seekers Together) from Manchester will be making a tuneful noise to remember and celebrate people’s resistance and persistence, from 1819 to today.

The choirs will bring the replica flag, as well as community made flags from groups in Skelmanthorpe, Huddersfield and Manchester to display during the performance.  See the original Skelmanthorpe banner on display in PHM’s Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest exhibition.

The choirs will perform a specially commissioned song that celebrates the story of the flag, written by Boff Whalley, Commoners Choir leader and founder/songwriter of Chumbawamba, as well as material from their own repertoire.
