The Fields of War


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

To mark the centenary of the end of World War I, two award-winning poets, Brian Johnstone and Chrys Salt, commemorate the conflicts of the past century and the human price paid. In a broad sweep of original poetry and prose, their acclaimed mixed media performance The Fields of War combines original poetry film and specially composed music, together with diary and memoir extracts, to evoke the losses of war from the Blitz to Bosnia, from Flanders to Iraq.
