Kay Mellor’s Band of Gold gets ready for world premiere

Band of Gold — based on the hit television drama series by Kay Mellor — will premiere this November in the writer’s hometown of Leeds at the Grand Theatre.

Band of Gold was the ground-breaking drama that captivated over 15 million viewers each week when it aired on ITV in March 1995 starring (amongst others) Geraldine James, Cathy Tyson, Barbara Dickson and Samantha Morton.

The nail-biting thriller tells the story of a group of women – Carol, Rose, Anita and Gina – as they battle to survive whilst working in a notorious red-light district. With a killer on the loose it’s a battle to survive…

Laurie Brett (EastEnders, Waterloo Road, Les Miserables), Gaynor Faye (Emmerdale, Playing the Field, Calendar Girls), Kieron Richardson (Hollyoaks, Heatbeat), Shayne Ward (Coronation Street, Rock Of Ages, X Factor winner), Sacha Parkinson (Mr Selfridge, The Mill), Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies, Coronation Street) and newcomer Emma Osman will all star in the production.

Band of Gold is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Thursday 28th November to Saturday 14th December 2019. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or call the Box Office on 0844 848 2700.
