Talbot House

A story in words and music full of humour, atmosphere and inspiration about the WWI haven and refuge. 

During the Great War, Talbot House in Poperinge, Belgium, just a few short miles behind the front line, became a haven for thousands of allied troops, regardless of rank. Run by a diminutive chaplain named Tubby Clayton, the house became a ‘home from home’ where troops enjoyed some home comforts and remembered the men that they really were. 

Aimed at a family audience, this feelgood, heart-felt play gives a brief taste of the history of the house and with the aid of poetry and music from the Great War, the atmosphere that was felt by the troops who visited.

Tickets: £13 adult £11 child (Family tickets available) | | Suitable ages 8+
