Mill Girls On Tour – Wigtown Book Festival – Monday 28 September 2015

Full of heart and humour: a unique production of poetry, theatre and music.

A poignant tribute to the resilient and passionate ‘Mill Girls’.

Wigtown Book Festival

Join the Mill Girls On Tour as they celebrate the lives of the thousands of women who worked in Paisley’s great thread mills - a familiar story taking its place alongside the great mill towns of Britain and the rich social history of working people.

From factory floor and war efforts to friendships and love, it is a show that is comic and tragic, defiant and loving, always dramatic and shimmering with glamour.
