A collection of letters written by six young women during the First World War is brought to life in a touching new show being performed as part of ongoing commemorative events in the region.

My Dearest Girls is an interesting and poignant insight into the day to day lives of the women who worked and waited whilst the men were at The Front.

The letters exchanged between a nurse, teacher, farmer, factory worker and young wife during that time are a fascinating look at life on the Home Front told from a refreshing new angle by actress Francesca Millican Slater.

My Dearest Girls is at Whissonsett Village Hall on Friday March 13 at 7.30pm and at the Heart of Norfolk in Bradenham on Saturday, March 14, also at 7.30pm.

This event is organised in partnership with Creative Arts East with funding by Arts Council England, Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council.
