Welcome to Grandma's Shop!

Clothes. Cats. Counter-culture.

Sheffield.  1989.  Loveable, eccentric septuagenarian, Hilda, has run a second-hand clothes shop for decades. She does it to make money to feed 30 stray cats. One day, a journalist from The Guardian walks in...


Join Hilda’s granddaughter for a solo show about family history subverting expectations. 


Step inside Hilda’s shop, a nostalgic world of old carrier bags, pools coupons and vintage clothes…presided over by an unlikely punk icon. 

Julie Flower presents a multi-character comedy-drama about love, memories and the stories clothes have to tell.
