Herizons go ‘Live at Lyme’!

Legends of Lyme

Fancy something to look forward to as the nights draw in and the leaves begin to fall? How about a very special performance at National Trust’s Lyme by our Herizons Creative Women’s Group?

Legends of Lyme updated flyer

Legends of Lyme is an innovative devised piece, exploring the untold stories of women from Lyme’s Regency Era through drama and music: Meet Sarah Glave, the mother to Lyme’s illegitmate heir; Ellen Turner, the young woman at the heart of an abduction scandal; Ellen Jane Legh, a motherless girl who finds solace in daydreaming, and Maud Lowther, an accomplished musician ahead of her time. The stories and secrets of all these women will unfold against the atmospheric backdrop of Lyme’s Saloon on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October, at 12pm and 3pm each day.

Legends of Lyme has been commissioned by Creative Industries Trafford, in partnership with the National Trust and Trust New Art, as part of ‘Live at Lyme’ – a series of new performance events taking place at Lyme throughout September.

Herizons are thrilled to be bringing their unique energy and creativity to such an inspiring venue and cannot wait to share these incredible women’s stories with you!

The performances are free to attend, though usual Lyme entry prices apply – please see their website for details.

About Herizons

Herizons is a community performance group of local women who meet every week for music and drama workshops at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House. Some members of the group first came together to devise and perform Gaskell: The Musical! – a sell out sensation at Manchester Histories Festival 2016 – and we are pleased to have welcomed new members along the way. Other performances since then include Strong Manchester Women and a special musical opening to Manchester City Council’s International Women’s Day Awards at the Town Hall. Herizons sessions are delivered by enJOY arts and Claire Mooney, in partnership with Elizabeth Gaskell’s House.
