In the centenary year of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, and the Peace celebrations that followed in Doncaster and across the country, this project remembers the stories of those who fought, those who refused to fight, and those left behind.

Internationally renowned singer-songwriters Findlay Napier, Bella Hardy and Greg Russell present an intimate evening of storytelling and song, inspired by stories from the archives, and those collected from Doncaster people through Doncaster 1914-18.

The first performance in May was a special Museums at Night show at Cusworth Hall in Doncaster where the work was presented with projections from visual art specialist Wayne Sables, bringing to life the personal stories and original objects which inspired the songs 

This show was followed in June with a short run of dates in Doncaster, Shrewsbury and London.
