About

Explore the historical streets of St Helens. Composer Verity Standen is creating a new roaming, choral experience specifically for St Helens, due to the historic significance the town has with conscientious objection.

St Helens was the home of Ernest Everett who was arrested due to his refusal to undertake combative service in 1916. He was court-martialed and sentenced to two years' hard labour, the first conscientious objector to receive such a sentence. Over the next few years, he was sentenced seven more times.

Refrain will be a promenade performance by a group of untrained male singers from the St Helens area. The performance will move audiences across various historical sites in the George Street Quarter of St Helens, including the oldest building in St Helens; the Friends Meeting House. More information about the locations will be released soon.

Step into their song.

Tickets: £8/£6
Various times across the weekend. See the website for more details.
