Old King Coal

10 May @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm


Acoustic duo, Fools Gold presents ‘Old King Coal’, an unashamedly nostalgic retrospective of life in the North of England in days gone by.

The stories and songs are a mixture of well-known and original and all feature the fascinating stories and histories you didn’t know (!) that hide behind them.

And, it’s not all about coal either – places, events, and characters of the North all rub shoulders with tales of the pit. Join us for a fascinating and fun evening in the company of Old King Coal

Old King Coal is a mixture of live acoustic music, featuring the amazing stories and histories that created the songs, all backed by projected images. The songs are both original and very well-known. There are funny moments and much more poignant tales too, but there is something for everyone.
