The Hired Man

Award Winning HXT Musical Society present their 2017 Production, The Hired Man.

Set in Cumbria from 1898 to the 1920s, it tells the story of the Tallentire family and their village community, who hope to survive WWI unscathed as they work on the land and in the mines.

This powerful and uplifting musical is a collaboration between two of the UK’s best-known writers and broadcasters, Melvyn Bragg (who based the story on his grandparents’ lives), and Howard Goodall’s (whose folk and choral inspired music perfectly matches Bragg’s delightful story).

A memorable experience awaits cast members and audiences alike.
