The Blake Theatre
Meet Tommy Atkins
7 November 7pm, £5
'Meet Tommy Atkins' takes the audience not just through Tommy's war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches - fighting on the Somme, at Passhendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State. From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there. This is his story.

Abergavenny Town Council remembers the Armistice 100 years ago by presenting “The Last Post”, a Music-Hall style production that combines a play with singalongs and music by some of Abergavenny’s community groups. The play is about the Home Front in Abergavenny, centering on a 15 year old telegram delivery boy in a warm and heart-wrenching story that sees the events of the Great War affect everyone in the town. Performing alongside the drama are: Strike a Chord Choir; Abergavenny Borough Band; Abergavenny Tenovus Choir; Celtic Cafe and more. https://boroughtheatreabergavenny.co.uk/events/the-last-post/
