NO PETTICOATS HERE - Louise Jordan : 8pm

Stories of remarkable First World War women

Discover inspirational women of the First World War through a combination of original songs, storytelling, images and a sound-scape, including the women’s own words.

Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan tells the stories of extraordinary women who challenged expectations. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women.
