Jonny Fluffypunk, Bill Jones ,John Bassett, Uta Baldauf, Stuart Butler, Paul Southcott, Angela Findlay, Crispin Thomas & Jeff The Fuse (Out To Lunch)


Following a packed and acclaimed show here in 2016, be transported once more in theatre, spoken word, live music and song to No Man’s Land in a moving and often funny re-creation of the 1914 Christmas Truce.

Performed by a host of Gloucestershire's finest performers in authentic 1914 garb, with tinsel for barbed wire and an ancient football together they turn the Sub Rooms into Flanders Field.

Based on local memories and the true story of two brave Forest Green FC players Harry Watts and Ernie Beale who set off from Nailsworth for the front line. Covering an undisputed moment in war, humour and history, poetry and poignancy combine in this compelling and unmissable ninety minute production.
