- a Novartis Suite production

Directed by Debra West

This is an evening of entertainment to commemorate the lives of those affected by the conflicts involving Britain through the ages.

The program will contain songs, sketches, readings and poems exploring the many aspects of war for those directly involved in the fighting, and those left at home to watch and wait.

The production will range from morale boosting songs from those who were sent to entertain the troops in the Second World War, moving poems from the First World War, personal testimony from diaries and letters, excerpts from Shakespeare’s plays, and comedic sketches and monologues from music hall to radio performers. The event aims to celebrate the commitment and sacrifice of all those touched by conflict right up to the present day.
