About

The History Troupe started with Sharp Street, a book about the impact of WW1 on a local community. Then, a performance attracting audiences in their hundreds and then momentum built across talks, readings, drama, musical performance, workshops in schools and now digital archives – all rooted in local hidden histories.

The team is expanding all the time from a solid core:

    • Rob Bell (Founder)
    • Graham Hamilton (Content Development Director) 
    • Dave Gawthorpe (Music)
    • Derek O’Connor (Creative)
    • Robb Robinson (Historian)
