It wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive edition of your favourite Holbeck- based interactive gameshow. And here it comes!
We’ve put the decorations up, the band have been practicing Driving Home for Christmas for months and we’ve ironed the creases out of our Christmas jumpers!
And yet Alan isn’t quite feeling it. It’s been a long year and it’s taken its toll on his festive cheer. But the Voice of God has a plan to bring the Christmas spirit back to The Holbeck with a bang!
You Can Bet It’s Christmas will be broadcast LIVE on Slung Low’s Facebook Page and YouTube.
18:00 on the 23rd December
But you can be there live as part of the show! We need to cast the crowd for this live broadcast from the car park of The Holbeck! And we want you!
What does it mean to play the role of the crowd in the show?
You sign up for a slot just like you would if you were booking a ticket to see the show.
Then we email you instructions nearer the time about what you should wear (warm, waterproof clothing) and send you some responses we might want you to practice before you come on down (I say Merry you say Christmas).
No one will have to get on the stage at any time. Covid rules wouldn’t allow it even if you wanted to! You’ll be asked to come along at 17:45 on 23rd December and play the role of crowd for the broadcast. The show will last approximately 75 minutes.

Adapted from Helen Forrester’s million-selling book, By The Waters OfLiverpool is a stunning period drama set in the 1930s. The story opens in 1935.Helen is sixteen years old and fighting a bitter battle with her parents forthe right to educate herself and go out to work. During the Great Depression,Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market crashed and the familywere suddenly thrown into poverty. Leaving behind the nannies, servants andcomfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, the Forrester’schose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock.Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while herparents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as anunpaid slave and desperate to escape. By 1939, now aged twenty and with Britainon the brink of war, she has still never been kissed by a man. But things startlooking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love.
“By The Waters Of Liverpool alsofeatures flashbacks to Helen’s earlier books Liverpool Miss and Twopence To Cross The Mersey. I’ve evenweaved in a storyline from Helen’s fourth autobiography, Lime Street At Two.That way those unfamiliar with Helen’s work still get a complete pictureof her life”.
