Vernons Girls tells the story about ordinary working-class women who had their lives turned upside down and were thrown into the glamourous world of rock ‘n’ roll.

In Liverpool in the 1950s more than 6,000 women are working in Vernons, checking the pools coupons and enjoying singing in the choir. In 1956, rock ‘n’ roll explodes in Liverpool and the world changes. Suddenly these ordinary young scouse girls are performing for audiences in their hundreds and thousands all around the country and in the new and exciting world of TV.
