Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of
who do the things no one can imagine.
The Giant Killers is an absorbing, heartfelt story of a town that came together to achieve the impossible and win the respect of the nation.
Left tired and despondent from the cotton famine of the 1870s, a small group of Lancashire mill workers found pride and hope in a game that up until then had been reserved for the upper classes.
A rip-roaring evening out, whether you know the off-side rule or not!

We are suggesting a donation of £5 per household viewing where possible, but it is free to watch for those who are struggling in these tough times.

We are making available an archive recording of a performance in front of a live audience at The Swallow Theatre.
The recording was not made with the intention of being shared or broadcast: it was made purely for archive purposes. However, in these strange times in which theatres across the UK are closed to audiences, we would like share it with you.
The theatre company has kindly given their permission for us to do this.
The recording was made using a single fixed camera that captures a full view of the stage. It gives a slightly elevated view, similar to sitting at the rear of our auditorium. As there are no cuts between cameras, you get to choose what to look at, as you would at a live performance.
The picture and sound quality of the recording have been optimised to give the best viewing experience.
If you experience any issues, however, please do let us know.
The recording will be available for viewing between the dates as shown above.
Once you have signed up you can watch the performance anytime to suit you during the available period.
If you intend to watch the recording close to the end date and time, please bear in mind the running time which is shown above to ensure that you allow sufficient time to see it all the way through to the end.
