“A masterstroke… drama at its best” Yorkshire Times

A star-studded cast visits Bath in the world premiere stage production of Kay Mellor’s multi award-winning TV series Band of Gold.

Band of Gold was the ground-breaking crime drama that captivated over 15 million viewers each week when it aired on ITV. The stories revolved around a group of women – Carol, Rose, Anita and Gina. At times both heartbreaking and humorous, Band of Gold tells the story of how a young mother is drawn into the notorious red-light district. With a killer on the loose, it’s a battle to survive!

The three iconic female lead roles that were played by Geraldine James, Barbara Dickson and Cathy Tyson in the television series, will be played on stage by Gaynor Faye (Emmerdale, Playing the Field, Calendar Girls), Laurie Brett (EastEnders, Waterloo Road, Les Misérables) and exciting newcomer Emma Osman. They will be joined by award-winning TV stars, Shayne Ward (Coronation Street, Rock of Ages, X Factor winner), Kieron Richardson (Hollyoaks, Heartbeat), Sacha Parkinson (Mr. Selfridge, The Mill) and Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies, Coronation Street).

Please note, Shayne Ward will not be appearing at the Friday and Saturday performances.
