Earlier this year, a group of local people worked with Otherstory and Remembering the Real WW1 to discover untold stories of Bedminster people in the First World War. Together we created Steps Against War, a history walk with puppets to tell these stories:
The 40 Bedminster men who refused to fight: who went to jail, or who took to the hills; the local detective always on their tracks; the women running networks of resistance – and the secret hideaway at the heart of Cannon Street…
Come and see a short documentary film Steps Against War. Followed by an exploration and discussion of how puppetry and performance can be used in communicating local histories. With some live puppetry, and a chance to meet the puppets. Booking here. Free entry.
The film of Steps Against War was produced by Pru Fowler and Ben Edwards.
