Daytimers, a family-friendly production, is set to take audiences back to the underground Bhangra music scene of Huddersfield which took place during the late 1980s and 1990s. It will take place at the Chol Theatre (Huddersfield) on Saturday 16th September.
This performance which blends music, dance, and storytelling, pays homage to a pivotal era in Huddersfield’s history and its significant role in a nationwide cultural movement.
In the 80s and 90s, Huddersfield’s secret underground Bhangra music scene thrived, drawing diverse communities to celebrate music, dance, and culture. The club Calistos in St George’s Square, in particular, hosted regular daytime raves, becoming a testament to the town’s rich cultural heritage.
Daytimers thoughtfully weaves together the stories of the original Daytimers ravers, shedding light on the town’s unique contributions towards this cultural phenomenon. Audiences of all ages are invited to join in celebrating the spirit, vitality, and memories of this era.
Jess Woodhead, Co-Director at Chol said: ”Daytimers offers a heartfelt tribute to an era when the town of Huddersfield resonated with the beats of Bhangra music and the joy of dance. It’s a must-see event for anyone who loves music or holds memories of those incredible times.”
Performances are at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 16th September and you can book your free tickets using this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/daytimers-tickets-671544225857
