Welcome to St. Mary's Social Club Batley

Sing as if no-one can hear you, dance as if no-one can see you! Come and enjoy yourself and live life to the full!

Join us for the premiere performances of The Batley Variations.   Featuring a large cast of local performers, digital projections and live performance, it tells stories collected from the people of Batley.

Directed by Alan Dix, written by Mike Kenny (international playwright and Olivier Award winner for his adaptation of The Railway Children) and composed by Richard Taylor (winner of two UK Theatre Awards), The Batley Variations is the inside story of a Northern town over 24 hours:  its local heroes and eccentrics, the unassuming and the extraordinary, iconic spaces and hidden secrets.  

St Mary’s Social Club will be transformed into a spectacular cabaret environment for this musical and visual feast!



Friday 23rd November, 7.30pm

Saturday 24th November, 7.30pm
