Corby Trades and Labour Club, 19th May 2015
This play by Shout Theatre company (an inter-generational company) was about War from WW1 to the present day.
Gus Hales and Angela came along to see the play.
George Hill and Spike Pike were asked by the director and peace campaigner Paula Bolton to take part.
Towards the end of the performance George laid a white wreath and then read from the VFP Statement of Purpose:
We, having dutifully having served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace.
Spike read his poem: War Machine and the whole cast and audience sang: Where have all the flowers gone.
There was a discussion on war after the Play and this was an opportunity for interaction with the cast and audience and to give some background on Veterans For Peace UK.
Gus mentioned that Veterans For Peace UK are working on visits to schools and that anyone interested should get in touch.
