On October 25th the Patrick Centre,will enter a time warp and find itself back in the early 20th century rural France.
A family friendly sleepover will take place inspired by the award winning, National Theatre's production of War Horse and as part of a WW1 commemoration.
Creative Learning & Audience Development Manager, Liz Leck said;
“In true theatre style, at the end of the night there will be a family performance created on the evening from scratch – we are inviting families to dust off their musical instruments and bring them along! For those less theatrical, the theatre will be recruiting for budding war correspondents and cartoonists to create and publish the first ever copy of the Hippodrome Herald.”
In short, there will be something to appeal to everyone!
The National Army Museum will be sending over some representatives who will be showing artifacts from their handling collection.
