Join actor Ruth Sillers for a commemoration and celebration of the experiences of women in the First World War, told in their own words, accompanied by a traditional cream tea.

Through poetry, journals and letters War Girls documents the contribution made by women from all walks of society. They detail not only personal hardship and suffering, but also the joy and excitement as the war brought women challenges, freedoms and possibilities previously unknown to them.
