Once A Year on Blackpool Sands

  • three minute theatre 35-39 Oldham Street Manchester, England, M1 1JG United Kingdom (map)

Based on a true story… Set in Blackpool in the summer of 1953 – not long after the Coronation of the new Queen – two Yorkshire miners, Eddie and Tommy are heading down to the seaside for the annual summer wakes. But Eddie is nursing a dark secret, one that Tommy is dreading to hear… 

‘On Blackpool Sands’ is a dark comedy with an emotional punch, dramatising real-life events and people that lead one man to begin the long fight for gay rights and acceptance, when one spark of outrage triggers a lifetime of activism.
