‘The Crooked Spire’ is set in Chesterfield during the 1360 building of St Mary’s Church spire, in the aftermath of a global pandemic!  Just a short few years after the Plague ravaged the country, the spire is rising above the tower of the Parish Church.

John Carpenter has come to help build that spire. He finds a friend in a young boy, Walter and falls head over heels for Katherine. But death and intrigue strike the construction site and John is suspected of murder.  He is faced with a life and death struggle to clear his name and bring the guilty to justice.

This is a production which we are currently in the process of recording and filming. You will be able to see an animation of the Windlass (now in Chesterfield Museum) which was used to build the spire in Chesterfield. The production includes support from the choir of St Mary and All Saints (at The Crooked Spire) as well as Dronfield Parish Choir members and actors of all ages from around the country (and alumni Royal Central School of Speech and Drama).
