Pack Up Your Troubles: 1914–1945 in Unexpected Stories & Popular Song
7:30 PM, West Street Loft
Ticket Cost: £8 (£6 Friends of Wordfest)

Sung by Miss Patricia Hammond and related by Mr Tom Cutler
Accompanied on the old Joanna by Mr Tom Carradine
In this evening of quirky history, laughter, and musical nostalgia, Internationally renowned singer Patricia Hammond follows the threads of patriotism, pacifism, and propaganda that run through popular songs of the period, while humourist Tom Cutler tells the incredible stories of the songs, the personal tales of the men who wrote them, and the forgotten histories of those who sang them.
This is an entertaining evening, with the chance for a little interwar audience participation: foot-tapping sing-alongs, join-in parlour tricks, and contemporaneous amusements. Unrationed beer and wine available.
