Wirral writer Brian McCann’s Down Our Street is the musical play celebrating the life and times of Cammell Laird, from the industrial revolution to the present day. For well over a century and a half, ‘The Yard’ was the employer of thousands upon thousands of people from, the Wirral, across the water in Liverpool and beyond. The town of Birkenhead was built around the Shipbuilding industry and most families, if not all had some connection to Cammell Laird. Through drama, comedy and song, Down Our Street celebrates this through the eyes of the people of Merseyside and the workers ‘down the yard’.
The show, once described in the media as ‘Birkenhead’s Les Miserables’ has had several outings, the last being here at the Floral Pavilion in 2017, which enjoyed packed houses and audiences leaving the theatre singing! This new production has a revised Act 2, bringing the Cammell Laird story right up to date.
"Down Our Street is a triumph of belief and sincere honesty and a wonderfully funny, enlightening, educational and sometimes heart-breaking musical" - Ian D. Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision

“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.”
Professor Henry Higgins makes a wager that he can raise a lowly Cockney flower girl—Eliza Doolittle—to the status of a high-society debutante in Lerner and Loewe's hit musical, My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play, Pygmalion, My Fair Lady plays as powerfully for modern-day audiences as it did in the original 1956 Broadway production. Eliza's transformation illuminates society's prejudices, the gender divide and personal identity. Featuring much loved songs such as ‘On the Street Where You Live’, ‘With A Little Bit of Luck’ and ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, My Fair Lady has been described as ‘wise, witty and winning’, ‘a work of theatre magic’ and ‘an irresistible hit’.
All prices advertised include a booking fee. No fees to Friends of the Floral. A postage fee may apply.
