Scuttlers: A Senior School Production

5O9A3875 scaled

Fans of Peaky Blinders were in for a treat when our young thespians took to the boards for CHS’s annual Senior School Production which this year, was ‘Scuttlers’.

Inspired by the Manchester riots of 2011 and the Manchester gangs past and present, Rona Munro’s play brings nineteenth century and twentieth century sensibilities together to tell the story of the young factory workers of The Industrial Revolution.

View photos of all the action below and watch the films to discover more about the Scuttlers and Manchester in the Industrial Revolution.
