“On Thursday, 12 of our History AS students made their way to Frome in Somerset to watch a performance given by a four-piece ensemble denoting the impacts on 4 women of the First World War post-Armistice Day. From the yellow-skinned women of TNT factories, to the thousands of women visiting the ‘Unknown Warrior’, in hope of the body being their boy brought home, our Historians learnt a great deal about the societal influences that the Great War had on both the people at home and in battle. Memoirs, trench art, death pennies and private footage exclusively from London’s Imperial War Museum were presented among other artefacts in the museum that helped our students develop a fuller; more sophisticated knowledge of the period currently being studied at College. A most entertaining piece and analysis of past events made for a very pleasant trip cross-county”.

This was a great experience and an innovative way of bringing history alive. The play and the handling exhibition brought the period to life. The knowledge and expertise of the cast was fantastic. My students really benefitted from being able to handle artefacts and discuss them with the experts. I would like to thank the Little Victory Ball and recommend it.
