The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff: Northern Stage


A night at the theatre to see The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff is a must!

Featuring songs from the original album alongside new material and stunning animation, make sure you catch Teesside folk trio The Young’uns perform a new, theatrical version of The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff at Northern Stage.

This is the true story of one man’s journey from poverty and unemployment in Stockton on Tees, through the Hunger Marches of the 1930s, the mass trespass movement and the Battle of Cable Street, to fighting fascism in the Spanish Civil War.

In a timely, touching and often hilarious musical adventure, follow the footsteps of a working-class hero who chose not to look the other way when the world needed his help, and took part in some of the momentous events of the 1930s.

Tickets are available to buy online from 1 July 2021.
