The experiences of soldiers who fought in the First World War are to be told in a special show at a Preston library.Advertisement
Magic Lantern Tales uses a real magic lantern projector to recount the experiences of old soldiers.
It takes viewers on a journey from the horrors of the frontline to coming home and growing old in a rapidly changing world.
Poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan put together the show along with documentary photographer Ian Beesley.
Ian McMillan said: “This is a magical evening of slides and words that tell the stories of a war that caught ordinary people in its terrible net.”
Also included are tales from women who worked in the munitions factories that supplied the war effort.
The show at the Harris Library takes place on Friday 26 September and is suitable for ages 12 and over.
Tickets are £10 for adults and £8 for children or concessions. Call 01772 533040 to book.
