Seeing Oh What a Lovely War? Go further and step back in time to experience what life was like at home for a mother during World War I. Put yourself in Helen’s shoes as she awaits updates from the front about her boy Ernest.


Download and listen to this 20-minute audio experience voiced by Katie Lyons and Oh What a Lovely War’s Wendi Peters.  You could listen to this in a place looking across a city centre, train station or your local park. Choose somewhere you can reflect and think about the time Helen is living in. Let this experience take you back to a time where news was sparse and you were fraught with worry.
