If anyone is teaching the Home Front over the next half term there is a great event on at the RichMix centre in Bethnal Green:


1940. The Battle of Britain is raging in the sky above. Germany could invade any day. It is impossible to ignore the rumble of guns and the rumours of spies and fifth columnists. It was one extraordinary burning summer that changed lives forever.

Find out about the propaganda, pilots, and planes that inspired Lydia Syson’s ‘That Burning Summer’, a novel for teens set in 1940, and take part in a drama workshop led by A Spaniel in the Works exploring life under the threat of invasion.

‘RULE ONE: If the Germans come by parachute, aeroplane or ship you must remain where you are. The order is to “stay put”…’

All ages welcome but most suitable for 9-14 years.

FREE! (a minimal booking fee is charged) But advance reservation is essential here

This event is part of ‘Days of Hope, 1945-2015′, a Philosophy Football celebration of comedy, ideas, live poetry and music commemorating both VE day and the landslide Labour victory of 1945.

16.30-17.30 Saturday 9th May 2015 at

Until the lion has a historian of his own, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.
