The story of the Cragg Vale Coiners, an eighteenth-century counterfeiting gang in West Yorkshire.
In this online event David Glover tells the tale of how an enterprising group of men in the Calder Valley area set up a counterfeiting operation in the 1760s, which would ultimately lead to the murder of local exciseman William Deighton, engaged in tracking them down.
David is President of Halifax Antiquarian Society and Vice-Chair of Halifax Civic Trust.

Tracing the Fab Four’s journey through the swinging 60s, every tiny detail is forensically observed from their authentic period costumes and instruments, to their witty stage banter and “inflection perfect” vocals. With a little help from their own orchestral ensemble, and featuring a special set to mark the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road, this show is an absolute must for Beatlemaniacs of all ages. Tickets from £34.25
