“A genuinely gripping and hugely entertaining piece of work”

Band of Gold – the stage adaptation of Kay Mellor’s multi award-winning ITV series, one of the most watched shows in television history – made its world premiere at Leeds Grand Theatre on Thursday 28th November 2019, and toured the UK in 2020.

The nail-biting thriller tells the story of a group of women - Carol, Rose, Anita and Gina - as they battle to survive whilst working in a notorious red-light district. When one of their colleagues is murdered, they need to find the killer before they strike again.
