What The Women Did – Forgotten Voices of The Great War

What The Women Did – Forgotten Voices of The Great War

Lyndhurst Drama and Musical Society is commemorating the role of Women during World War 1 through Drama, Music and Poetry.

In August 1914 the Suffragettes suspended all political activity and joined the war effort. As men left the country to fight in the trenches, women stepped in and took over their jobs. On the home front women defended and kept the country going for 4 years, coming together in strength, community, patriotism and passion. Joining the war service millions of Women worked in munitions factories, joined the Voluntary Aid Detachment and boosted morale by entertaining troops overseas. Women took to their pen writing powerfully evocative material about their lost generation.

Show dates are 25/26/27 October at 7.45pm. Tickets are on sale at the Lyndhurst Community Centre from 24 September and cost £8 for 25 October and £9 for 26 & 27 October.  Telephone enquiries to 023 8028 2729.
