Taking the plunge to tell Edwardian love story

Lovers Maggie and Charles

Opera singers and contemporary dancers are putting on a show with a difference at Bramley baths. They'll be performing both in and out of the water, telling the tale of an Edwardian love story .... in the the last surviving Edwardian bath house in Leeds.

"Dear Maggie: an Edwardian Love Story in Postcards" follows the romance of Maggie and Charles, a couple who met in the early 1900s at a swimming gala, and told through the pairs' modern-day granddaughter after the discovery of heart-warming postcards written by the couple.

Devised by students from Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, its also features students from Leeds College of Music and guests are asked to bring their swimming costumes and plunge in with the cast after the show tonight.
