Performing Arts etc, on behalf of Bradford Music and Performing Arts Hub, worked with pupils from a number of secondary schools to devise a brand new musical. Featuring stories, experiences and issues from across Bradford District, the musical charts social history and tells the stories in the words of the teenagers involved.
