The Day the World came to Huddersfield

On 4th July 1981, thousands marched through the streets of Huddersfield. They came from all over the country for this protest, the first of its kind, the UK’s first national Gay Pride. This new production marks the 40th anniversary with an immersive new drama by award-winning playwrights Stephen M. Hornby, Abi Hynes, Peter Scott-Presland and Hayden Sugden.

Prepare your protest and get ready to shout “2,4,6,8, is that copper really straight?!” as a series of stories unfold based on the people who attended and the unique events of the day, stories of love, political activism and friendship. Relive this forgotten moment in history, the day when the world came to Huddersfield.

Praise for previous queer history plays by Stephen M Hornby and Abi Hynes includes:

“First class theatre, beautifully staged, interacting wonderfully with the audience” – Russell T Davies.
