Forest Forge is about to launch Battle Lines, a project which will draw on the stories of the people and communities of Hampshire to inform a trio of plays that will tour the county in spring 2014. Developed in partnership with The Spring in Havant, Forest Arts in New Milton,The Lights in Andover and Winchester University, Battle Lines is an in depth exploration of Hampshire during 100 years of conflict – from World Wars I and II, through to modern day warfare.
The project is launching with a series of Tea Dance events which are an open invitation to all to get involved by sharing personal memories, family stories or communal histories.
