CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
In 1909 a team of raggy-trousered miners from West Auckland in County Durham - most of whom had never left their home town - are mistakenly invited to represent England in the first-ever world football competition in Turin.Selling their possessions to pay for the trip they find themselves away from their home and families and out of their depth, culturally, financially and sportingly. Despite this the underdogs roll up their sleeves and take on the world, winning the trophy. They went to Italy as miners and came back heroes.
