Words, Women in WW1 at Bradford Cathedral for Int. Women’s Day:-

a one woman show performed by writer Irene Lofthouse in the Cathedral in Little Germany, highlights the forgotten poetry/memoirs and war efforts made by a handful of Yorkshire women; one who fought as a soldier in Serbia, another who drove ambulances and died in a bombing raid in France, one who worked as a VAD; one who was friends with Arthur Conan Doyle- all wrote prose/poetry which has been ‘lost’ in the intervening century but was popular at the time. Interlaced with contemporary songs performed by Irene, this was an inspiring and engaging show with great research and use of primary sources.
