Turn the Dark Clouds Inside Out 'til the boys come home
£5.00 including tea and cakes

Jessa Liversidge voice
Malcolm Maddock piano
York Railway Institute Golden Rail Brass Band
With original footage from the Yorkshire Film Archive’s ‘Filmed and Not Forgotten’ project.

Wartime women – their lives, loves, songs and stories. Poems, letters, and diary extracts will bring to life the experiences and feelings of the women of WWI, while music and songs from the period will give you a flavour of the ups and downs of life in these difficult times. From emotional ballads to uplifting marches, bawdy favourites and even knitting songs; heart-breaking poems of loss, uplifting diary entries and amusing anecdotes.

A superbly structured performance...heartfelt, moving and delivered with high quality of voice and a warm humour” Flanagan Collective
