The story of one of the most astonishing sports people ever to have lived is told at Wickenby’s Broadbent Theatre next month.
“Beryl - A Romance on Two Wheels” is a witty, charming and critically acclaimed play celebrating the life of unsung sporting legend Beryl Burton – the greatest woman on two wheels.
Written by celebrated actress Maxine Peake, this funny and moving show tells the story of this remarkable Yorkshire woman who became a world champion cyclist in the 1960s.
Five times world pursuit champion and 13 times national champion, Beryl Burton’s accolades include former world record holder, former British record holder, an MBE and OBE.
But with her down to earth, no-nonsense approach to life and to success, she remained a mystery - but not anymore.
This fascinating and truly heart-warming production by West Yorkshire Playhouse comes to the Broadbent on Saturday, October 3.
And you don’t need to know anything about cycling to enjoy it.
Tickets cost £9 and £8 from www.broadbenttheatre.org or call the box office on 01673 885500
