Dr Blighty is a big show in May in Brighton Festival, it will take place in Pavilion Gardens and tells the story of the days when the Pavilion and Dome served as a hospital for wounded Indian soldiers during WW1.
Part of the show will involve a number of voices reading the letters which the soldiers sent home to their families. You will be able to hear these on sound equipment hidden in the trees etc – the whispers of the past……………
We are looking for 4 or 5 young people aged between 8 and 14 who would be able to come to the Royal Pavilion for a recording session in March. The recordings will then be taken away and edited for May so this is a one off engagement!
Details as follows: Thursday March 10th . Meet in Brighton Dome Foyer Bar, Church Street 4.30 pm for an introduction to the project followed by a recording session which will take place in the Royal Pavilion Music Room from 6pm – 7.30 (latest)
Licensed chaperones are available but Parents can accompany their children at all times including entrance to the Royal Pavilion.
Refreshments and travel expenses will be provided.
Anyone interested in taking part will be sent letters to practise reading –nobody is expected to learn their scripts!
