BRIGHTON FRINGE 2021:

My life as a child during WW2

For the Brighton Fringe, we are excited to offer a series of talks by three of our senior volunteers about life during the Second World War.  Each of our contributors have fascinating and detailed accounts of what life was like for themselves and for other children and families during the war years.

The talks will be held via Zoom and the attendees will be encouraged to ask questions throughout the session. Each of our three contributors run weekly workshops for school children who attend Take Shelter visits, but this will be the first time they will be sharing their stories first hand with a wider audience.

Each event will cover a wide all aspects of life during the war, seen through the eyes of children, including family life, evacuation and bombing raids over Brighton. The series of talks is as follows:

  • Sunday 6th June, 5-6pm – Gas masks with Alan Dart
  • Sunday 13th June, 5-6pm – Living through the War with Ann Ellis
  • Sunday 20th June, 5-6pm – Shelters, shopping & shillings with David Pierce
