Apollo Theatre Company presents:

Keep the Home Fires Burning

Thursday 27 November – 1pm and 7.30pm

 

Presented byApollo Theatre Company

Written and performed by Amy Hamlen with James Church on the piano Directed by Tim Astley“There’s a silver lining
Through the dark clouds shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out
‘Til the boys come home.”
The history books are full of the brave exploits of the nearly six million British soldiers who served in World War II. But what of the women they left behind?
These wives, mothers, sisters and daughters are so often omitted from the annals of war, but their contribution to the war effort, taking on the jobs the men had to leave, in factories, on the land, driving fire engines and ambulances and keeping the country on its feet, must never be forgotten.
Apollo Theatre Company present this brand new show which uses real accounts of women who lived through the war, punctuated beautifully with some of the most enduring music and songs from the period.
“A gripping insight into the unrecognised significance of an entire gender during hostilities”

Landscape Photographer Astrid McGechan has made it her mission to explore and share the visual delights the Borough of Elmbridge has to offer. From Black Pond on the Esher Commons to Concorde at Brooklands, from swans at Cowey Sale to the bluebell carpet at Painshill, from the Landscape Garden at Claremont to sunrise in Molesey’s Hurst Park – this exhibition portrays the beauty that can be found right on our doorstep.

On show is a selection of images from Astrid’s book “The Elmbridge Hundred – A Visual Journey”, including the winning images of a photography competition, in which students of senior schools in Elmbridge took part.
