A Living Exhibition – Keep the Homefires Burning – Sunday 9 Nov 2014
Life on the Home Front 1914-1918 – A Living Exhibition by Fulbourn Community Theatre
Free admission (voluntary donations welcomed to support village charities)
Suitable for all ages.
In November 1914, Fulbourn was proud to be the first place in Cambridgeshire to set up a convalescent hospital in what was the Victorian school in School Lane. On Remembrance Day 2014, Fulbourn Community Theatre will recreate this hospital and represent many of the residents from Fulbourn and adjoining villages who lost sons, husbands and fathers. This is a living exhibition – walk through the hall and you will be able to listen to the correspondence from the front; read postcards; chat to the recovering soldiers or help them write letters home; watch the entertainment that the local people provided for the patients; serve tea; play a game of chess or Happy Families; join a whist drive; learn how to bandage an arm.
Stay as long as you like and find out what it was like to be a village at war.
Directed by Jenny Culank.
There is still the possibility for you to get involved in the production, both front stage and back stage. Extra young men would be particularly welcome. Rehearsals will start soon. If you are interested, please contact Jenny on 880371 or email@example.com.
Sunday 9 November, 2.30 to 5.30pm on the floor of the Townley Hall, Fulbourn Centre
