Nottingham 2019 meets Nottingham 1847 in a time travel history adventure. An original musical written by Brian Lund.
In a corner of Nottingham's Arboretum stands a statue of a man with a parchment in his hand. Most people walking by hardly give him a second glance, and those who look rarely take in the significance of the structure. Few people in Nottingham have heard of or know anything about the man with the parchment, who was a member of parliament for Nottingham from 1847-52 and an inspiration for people nationwide, during his lifetime and afterwards. He was the leader of Britain's first national political working-class movement, Chartism. He has, though, been largely airbrushed out of the city's history.

But now, over a century and a half later, that man - Feargus O'Connor, and the parchment he is holding, the Chartist petition of 1848 – is celebrated in an original musical looking at his philosophy and achievements, linking it to contemporary Nottingham and the love lives of four students.

The all-singing, all-dancing show, Feargus The Musical is based on the attachment to this period in history of present-day university student Adam, who travels back in time, intrigued by O'Connor and the Chartist movement and becomes entangled in the dangers inherent in Chartism, the first working class national political movement.

The city of Nottingham is the focal point of the musical, along with some London scenes, as the present day and 19th century meet though a web of fantastic characters. There are plenty of moments of comedy and drama included, and Brian has written the complete script and songs himself. Nottingham's most famous landmarks, people (including icons Robin Hood and Brian Clough!) and even the tram network, are acknowledged in the show through its catchy numbers – 17 totally original songs.

Feargus The Musical, was premiered in the South Nottinghamshire village of Keyworth in November 2018 and proved to be a big hit with local audiences during its four-night run.

Audience feedback included:

"It captivated me with its mesmerising all-singing, all-dancing cast"

"A phenomenal achievement and a superb history lesson"
