Presented by Badapple Theatre Company

Set against the backdrop of World War 1, the quiet village backwater of Bottledale is changed forever by the advent of the Great War in Europe. But the roll of honour stone in the village square remains empty and un-etched as the years pass, and folk start to wonder.

This is a story of hope, humour and humanity, about the men who went away, and the women left behind, and the eccentric twists and turns of daily life that led to their re-uniting, for better or for worse, in the winter of 1918.

The Thankful Villages were those which lost no men in the Great War because all those who left to serve came home again, and there were some 52 settlements in England and Wales with this title at the end of the conflict.
