The Life & Times of Chat MossThe story of Chat Moss
An original promenade performance at the Lancashire Mining Museum. The Carbon Landscape Partnership commissioned Healthy Arts to capture the story of Chat Moss as a piece of theatre to raise awareness of the project, engage with the community and celebrate the natural heritage of the area.
Before Lockdown 2.0, the Lancashire Mining Museum at Astley Green hosted the promenade play "The Life and Times of Chat Moss", created by Healthy Arts. This was a sell-out and the whole filmed performance is now available to purchase. Watch the trailer and if you would like a copy of the full production this can be purchased via PayPal.
Payment of £10.00 can be made via PayPal by emailing: email@example.com
Once payment is received, a secure link will be sent to you to allow you to watch the full promenade play. Everyone who came praised the performance and the organisation of this unique event, despite the coronavirus restrictions.
All proceeds from the sale of this video will help the mining museum to survive through these difficult times, so if you came you can now relive it and if you missed it, you can now experience the whole performance from the comfort of your own home.
Researched and produced by Healthy Arts, three monologues were performed by professional actors.
Martin Green (actor & director)
Julie McKiernan (researcher & writer)
Chris Boyle (actor)
Jo Dakin (actor)
Andrew Kettle (actor & singer)
Iain Cash & Neil McCartney (filming & editing)
It is wonderful that all these different organisations are coming together. It must be one of the hardest things in the world to educate people in such an entertaining way. It was absolutely wonderful.
I was wondering how do you make a bog sound interesting. The team from Healthy Arts have done that pretty well.
I really enjoyed it, well organised (which I'm sure was a nightmare!) and a really unique event. Loved how so many organisations came together - each giving their own expertise.
