Atlanta Forever: Mikron Theatre

Saturday June 13th 2020 | 7.30 pm

St Peter's Parish Hall,
Market Bosworth CV13 0LL

Everything you need to know about women's football told Mikron style!

Mikron return with their current production telling the tale of women’s football from the turn of the last century to its popularity as a spectator sport for modern times.

 

Game on! 

It’s 1920, and in post-war Britain, women’s football is big news.

Across the country, all-girl teams are pulling huge crowds in fund-raising games for wounded soldiers. Huddersfield amateurs Ethel and Annie take a shot at the big time. Teammates at Atalanta AFC, they’re soon tackling new football skills, mastering the offside rule and kicking back at the doubters. 

Come and cheer for Atalanta as our plucky underdogs learn how to play the game, take on the legendary Dick, Kerr Ladies – and find the toughest opponent of all is the FA.
