Betty Brown Bags

Raggle Taggle Arts

Dance, Music/Sound, Theatre

Inspired by a traditional folk play from Lancaster, Betty Brown Bags and her musical side-kick Billy celebrate the strength and resilience of Northern working class culture.

This interactive show is a physical theatre piece with a pantomime flair, featuring live music, clog dancing, singing and even some sword fighting, something for all ages! Let Betty and Billy tell you their tale of the evil King George and how they need all of YOU to defeat him.
