Event description

Description

Come and join us for an evening of theatre, poetry and music in the historic Tooley's boatyard. A double bill to whisk you back to the days of WWII when a shortage of crews to keep the working boats going brought a new breed of boater to the canal – later nicknamed the Idle Women. Lose yourself in Isobel’s War (Kate Saffin) and Idle Women and Judies (Heather Wastie) and hear the stories of those young women who took on the challenge to manage a pair of boats and 55 tons of cargo.

It's free entry (we welcome donations) but space is limited so you can ensure you will have a seat by reserving your place here.
