Event description

Description

Leading West End professionals have returned to Batley & Spen for a Summer School and to create an original production designed to build on the phenomenal success of last year’s performances of Les Misérables and More In Common dedicated to Jo Cox.

The Batley & Spen Youth Theatre Company, a charity formed in 2017 to celebrate the life and values of Jo Cox, is hosting a Summer School in Batley where up to 80 young people are being tutored by a team of top professionals from London’s West End theatres. The two week Summer School will culminate in a show-stopping performance of Deeds not Words: A Summer of Suffragettes and Soldiers.

The project is based around the centenary of a unique generation: the heroic soldiers who fought in the First World War and the courageous women who battled for women’s suffrage.

The young people of Batley & Spen are bursting with talent and passion, and have created a unique and exciting production which explores freedom and asks the question: What would you fight for?”
