Subject: Review: Peterloo Musical - Ted Edwards
From: Bernard
Date: 10 Aug 09 - 07:22 AM

Ted Edwards has written a musical based on the Peterloo Massacre of 1819, Manchester, UK.

This year sees the 190th anniversary of the atrocity on Sunday August 16th.

A radio adaptation will be broadcast on Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm, also available online, on Saturday August 15th at 19.00, and again on Sunday 16th at 17.00 (to be confirmed) and 22.00 (confirmed). We do not have a 'listen again' facility online yet because of PRS issues, so you can only listen at the above times - GMT +1 (British Summertime).

Those taking part are:
John Howarth
Gary and Vera Aspey
Peter and Barbara Snape
Roy Clinging
Geoff Higginbottom
Michelle Holding
Ali O'Brien
Bernard Cromarty
Sid and Lizzie Calderbank
Jan and John Cartain
Ged Todd
Steve Chatterley

Crowd sounds have been 'provided' by those attending the Uppermill Museum concerts at Saddleworth Festival and the audience at Stewart Lever's recent charity concert at Lymm Folk Club!

Ted had hoped to persuade a theatre company to take on this musical, but despite sending information and stamped addressed envelopes to fifty theatres, has had no response at all. How hard would it have been for them to write 'no thanks' on a compliment slip and post it to him? Okay, they are busy, but that was two years ago!

We're hoping this broadcast will show them what they are missing!

Everyone taking part has given freely of their valuable time, and we are very grateful for this. We're also grateful to Dave McGealy, the Station Manager at Oldham Community Radio, for giving us the air time.

Dave has also organised a re-enactment of the march, which will take place on Sunday 16th. More details on the Oldham Community Radio website.

Hi Bernard

Sounds like an interesting show, did you contact Mikron Theatre based at the Mechanics Institute, Peel Street, Marsden, West Yorks, they normally write their own material but perhaps would consider this, it is a subject that they would normally jump at the chance of covering. Please pass on my regards to ted when you see him next.

Thanks

I'll be seeing Ted on Wednesday to take him to Songs in the Snug at the Saracen's Head, Warburton. I'll give him your best wishes, Nick!

It's quite possible it will be released on CD... we didn't have a production budget, so some people are playing two characters... one on either side! It shouldn't be too confusing, because they never 'appear' in the same scene together, and Ted's dialogue is compelling enough to take your mind off it!

For example, Roy Clinging plays the part of Arthur O'Neill, 'Union Rep', and also James Norris, 'Magistrate and Tory'...! John Cartain plays Hugh Birley, Mill Owner, and also one of his own spinners!

See if you can spot where we'd run out of blokes, and I dropped two women's voices down a tone for a couple of lines...

As you've already guessed, it was a truly great script to work with, and there are a few 'typically Ted' songs to join in with!

One of the many highlights is 'Rickets!', sung by Vera Aspey. It was scripted to be sung by a group of children, but we weren't able to organise that, so I asked Vera to do it rather than leave it out... it's a real 'ear-worm'!!

"Rickets! Lovely Rickets! An enemy that's almost like a friend!"

Gary Aspey is singing the Radical's Song 'The Dignity of Labour', but my personal favourite is John Howarth's portrayal of 'Dad'. Sid Calderbank and daughter Lizzie play a pair of thieves stealing coal... "Thievin', thievin', doin' the business and leavin'!"... another cracker!

The whole thing was recorded in my front room with a pair of AKG C1000 microphones and a Marantz PMD610 digital recorder. As we couldn't get everyone together to record, it was done in chunks and knitted together afterwards. I've added ambience and sound effects to make it more convincing, but it remains to be seen whether everyone else thinks I've done justice to Ted's script - and the time everyone has put in.

From that point of view I feel a little reluctant to issue it on CD - it's fine for a couple of airings on radio, but will it stand closer scrutiny... I'm not so sure. Ted will have the final say on that, and he hasn't heard it yet.

Please tune in or listen on line and let me know what you think.

I'll make a note to try and listen to this. My great, great, great grandfather received the princely sum of £5 to compensate for the sabre wounds he received to his hands and head. How he managed to walk back from St Peters Fields to Bullock Smithy after the event I'm never likely to find out.

Do Joe Nadin or William Hulton (imagine the sound of spitting) put in an appearance?

It would probably be more apt if they stood lurking in the wings - just like in 1819.

William Hulton (played by Ged Todd of Swinton Folk Club) is quite a prominent character. Joe Nadin 'appears' briefly in Act 6 Scene 2, 'Mr. Buxton's Upper Room, 6 Mount Street'.

Hi Bernard
I've no idea whether he was involved with the Blanketeers, I've still to finish researching him. I don't know if there are any sources of names for such organisations and the main centre for Peterloo research has been closed for the past couple of years. What I do know was that he started off as a cotton printer and ended up as a sawyer but still in Bullock Smithy (Hazel Grove for those who don't know.)

I have told the tale here before but in case anyone is interested, the site of the Peterloo Masacre was marked with what should have been a lasting memorial, the Free Trade Hall. It still makes my blood boil to think that Manchesters so-called labour council have sold this magnificent institution to be used as a facade for an hotel where normal working people would be hard pushed to spend a night! I saw a seller of the big issue being moved away from the hotel steps by an overly zelous doorman. I think he regretted his actions after I had given him chapter and verse on the history of the area for 10 minutes:-)

I will be visiting a well known Swinton ex-patriot in Scotland that weekend but, provided we have not had that much Scottish water we cannot work t'interweb, we may get chance to have a listen. If not I will be one of the first in the queue for the CD. Well, I probably will even if we DO get to listen!

Cheers

Geoff Higginbottom was doing some research, and was surprised that he couldn't find anything specifically marking 'St. Peter's Field' on or around the Free Trade Hall... until he was doing something else and found a little blue plaque in a doorway down a back alley. So the Free Trade Hall (or what's left of it) isn't quite on the site, it would seem, but close by.

I can't just recall where he said the plaque is to be seen, but I'll find out!

Thanks for that! I must go and look at it for real. The 'now and then' maps are excellent.

Interesting that they decided to change the colour, but pathetic that they still haven't come up with a more fitting memorial.

In ten years it will be the bi-centenary. Maybe we should join the campaign to get something done...

I'm somewhat surprised, not to say dismayed, at the death toll of 11 as stated on the new plaque. My understanding has always been that there were at least 15 killed on the day, plus an unknown number who died later of their injuries (they were too afraid of arrest to seek medical help).

If you look at the interactive map you will see that the Free Trade Hall is indeed on the site but the bigger issue (pun intended considering my earlier tale!) is that it has now been sold by the council to the Radison Hotel Group to make money! It was never admitted that the Hall was a memorial to the people and it was built, ostensibly, to mark the introduction of the Free Trade Act which replaced the Corn Laws. It is generaly known however that it was built to salve the conscience of those involved. Apart from William Hulton of course, who didn't have one! Fortunately his peers did see the error of his ways and although he never understood why, the Petrloo massacre did mark the end of his political career.

Geoff Higginbottom is doing his Peterloo show at the Angel on Sunday evening. I think it is organised by Martin Gittins, and it's ticket only costing a fiver.

Which, incidentally, is the song from the musical sung by Hulton and co...!
Panic, panic, panic now,
But never ever realise,
That panic is the cause of all our ills.
Panic, panic, panic now,
And don't forget to mobilize,
Forgetting, in your fear, that panic kills.
And in your panic you will see,
That your inhibitions flee,
And your basic situation will be weak.
But when panic is in view,
All the logic will go too,
And your hold on reality is bleak.

Just finished listening, A really enjoyable programme which would certainly make a superb theatrical production.

I hope it will one day make an appearance at Folk Festivals, It certainly deserves to. Well done to all involved.

That's what I'd have thought, though some apple-ications may change the defaults, just as on a PC... b****y computers!!

I got back from my travels in time to catch the Sunday night broadcast and it must have been good 'cus I managed to stay awake to the end.

Well done to Ted, and I look forward to hearing him do some of the songs again next Wednesday at the Saracen's Head. I've had Rickets going through my brain (the song - not the infection) since Sunday night.

Well done to the cast too. Its amazing what you can get away with on t'wireless - I'm sure one or two of them are a little older than the characters they were portraying!

Fred says that the Stockport Plaza are 'VERY KEEN' to put the show on (so long as it costs them nothing) and are only waiting for someone from Ted's side to get things moving. So it could be the start of a world tour.
