RSC Sharing Stories Of The Great War

You are invited to join the RSC on to share the stories, memories and artefacts that link your family to the First World War.

Saturday 8 March, The Royal Shakespeare Company.


The Royal Shakespeare Company are holding the event as part of our activity remembering the centenary of the Great War and our production of The Christmas Truce.

You can drop in at any time between 10am- 3pm at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, to meet the creative team, share your stories or begin researching your family history.


















Meet the director and writer of The Christmas Truce

Come and meet the director of The Christmas Truce, Erica Whyman, writer Phil Porter , and other people from here at the RSC who are keen to learn more about Warwickshire and the surrounding area's connection to the First World War.

The RSC are hoping you'll come along and share stories, photographs, letters or any other artefacts on the day as they build a picture of local people's connections to those who fought, and those who stayed at home, 100 years ago.
