Set in 1845, Joseph Sefton, played by Stephen Howe, recalls the experiences of his life during the cotton revolution.

The intriguing tales come top life through story telling, song and the music of folk group Trebuchet.

The production is a special collaboration for musicians Keith Carter Harris, Mark Seyler and Steve Mansfield, who formed in the early noughties performing self penned and traditional folk songs.

Mark said: “We performed The Mill Ballads for the first time in October 2020 to a sell out audience just before the pandemic put future performances on hold.

“We are delighted to be back on the road again and looking forward to performing in the Green Room’s unique studio theatre space.”

Trebuchet’s distinctive sound and the energy of their music combined with the engaging performance of actor Stephen Howe brings to life this important period of history.
