"Edith Cavell Facing the Silence” for the Bells Appeal

Please join us for "EDITH CAVELL FACING THE SILENCE" at The Church of St Peter & St Paul Barnham Broom NR9 4DB on Saturday 18th November. Doors open 7pm for 7.30pm.

This one-woman play by Broad Horizons Theatre Company is set in 1915. English nurse, Edith Cavell, has been captured by the Germans and accused of treason. She has faced sixty days of near solitary confinement, interrogation and now a trial. The play is set in Edith’s prison cell in Brussels, and sets out to find meaning in her trials, discovering who she is and why she lived, how she travelled from a quiet Norfolk parish to a prison cell in Brussels.

Tickets are £10 per person. They will go on sale at the Quiz Night at the Village Hall on Saturday 14th October and following that at Barnham Broom Post Office & Stores. 

On the night, we are hoping to have the window ledges in the church decorated with small items of nursing memorabilia. If you have any such items that you think might be suitable and would be willing to let us use, please contact us with details either via our email  bbbells.appeal@gmail.com   or via a private message on our Facebook page   https://www.facebook.com/barnhambroomchurchbellsappeal



Thank you
