The Brierley Hill Songbook

September 13, 2023 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm

The Brierley Hill Song Book.

Come and hear Brierley Hill’s stories in song, celebrating our colourful heritage, present and future with Dan Whitehouse and the Brierley Hill Songwriters.

All of the songs were written around local characters and stories and include:

  • I Don’t Want to be a Scratching (Marsh and Baxters) – not all the pigs wanted to be there!
  • The Waters of Brierley Hill – celebrating the Fens Pools and the local canals.
  • The Sun Always Shines on Brierley Hill – OK, sometimes you have to look beyond the clouds, but it’s always there – honest!  The song was inspired by the feelings of that first pint of. Bathams Bitter after a long hot day.
  • The Pubs of Brettell Lane – from an 1852 poem by Samuel Paskin
  • Duty Calls – what was it like to be an ambulance driver in the days of Round Oak
  • The Wobbly Vicar – building on a story from the historic journal
  • Hope Pill – a song of optimism for regeneration in the town

Doors open 7pm, music starts at 7.15pm.  There will be a short break for refreshments during the performance.
