The Girl from the Workhouse

Staffordshire, 1911. Ginnie Jones' childhood is spent in the shadow of the famous Potteries, living with her mother, father and older sister Mabel. But with Father's eyesight failing, money is in short supply, and too often the family find their bellies aching with hunger. With no hope in sight, Ginnie is sent to Haddon Workhouse.

Wartime with the Tram Girls

July 1914: Britain is in turmoil as WW1 begins to change the world. While the young men disappear off to foreign battlefields, the women left at home throw themselves into jobs meant for the boys.

Hiding her privileged background and her suffragette past, Constance Copeland signs up to be a Clippie - collecting money and giving out tickets - on the trams, despite her parents' disapproval.

The Potteries Girls on the Home Front

March 1911: Betty Dean needs a job and somewhere to live, and eventually, a husband - according to her mother. Sent into service at Stowford House in Cheshire, where the days are long and the work is gruelling, Betty's dreams of making something of herself seem even further away.

But soon she is forced to return to The Potteries, carrying with her a dreadful secret which could leave her reputation in tatters.
