This weekend the charity premiere of the drama-documentary ‘William’s Story, the follow-up to ‘Tell Them of Us’, which told the WWI story of the Crowder brothers, takes place in Horncastle.
As a nation we rarely tell WW1 survivors’ stories, but this is one.
It covers the war experience of the surviving brother, William Crowder, as given in his memoirs, and how his war experience informed his life subsequently.
By highlighting this, it also shows what Robert, and the millions who died with him, would never have.
It touches too on the work of Stanhope Hall as a WW1 Auxiliary Red Cross Hospital, and was used to recreate the ward for a scene.
The premiere takes place this Saturday, December 5, in Stanhope Hall at 7pm.
Tickets cost £7.50 and must be bought in advance.
They are available from: Crowders Garden centre, Perkins Newsagents in Horncastle Market Place and Woodhall Spa Drycleaners.
All funds raised will go towards the restoration of Thimbleby Church.
