An exciting new show which has Chesterfield’s iconic ‘crooked spire’ at its heart is coming to Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre from 19th – 21st May.
The musical has been created by Ashgate Heritage Arts, a not-for-profit theatre production company founded by Martin Coslett and Peter Gray, musicians and lyricists who live in Chesterfield and Mary Hennessy, an award-winning scriptwriter from Buxton.
A version of the show was well received when it was previewed at Buxton’s Fringe in 2020 and some of the songs from the show also delighted an audience at St Mary and All Saints Church, (the actual ‘crooked spire), in October 2021.
