World Premiere performance

“An Honest Soldier never is forgot, Whether he die by Musket or by Pot.”

Summer 1918: Bill Wilson, an American soldier, is billeted in Winchester on his way to fight in the war in France. An encounter in Winchester Cathedral will eventually draw him to a new way of life - and on his return to America, he will become one of the founding members of a worldwide organisation: Alcoholics Anonymous.

Compiled by Philip Glassborow and presented by 2Time Theatre, this new play for voices includes music and poetry from the First World War, with extracts from the writings of Bill
Wilson and other contemporary accounts.

Also performed on Sunday 8 July.

Pictures from the Edge of the World

Chris Packham is a celebrated naturalist, television presenter, writer, photographer, conservationist, campaigner and filmmaker.

After graduating in Zoology from Southampton University, Chris began taking still photographs and trained as a wildlife film cameraman. The camerawork gave way to presenting, but photography is still one of Chris’ passions. As a broadcaster, he is a presenter of BBC’s Spring, Autumn and Winterwatch series. He has presented natural history series such as Nature’s Weirdest Events, World’s Weirdest Events, World’s Sneakiest Animals, Inside the Animal Mind, Operation Iceberg and Secrets of our Living Planet. In this talk, Chris travels to some of the world’s wildlife hot spots and recounts tales from the frontline.
