Unfortunately, this course is no longer taking place. Take a look at all the other workshops and classes at the Learning Centre here.

40 years ago this summer the first peace protestors arrived at Greenham Common to draw attention to the siting of cruise missiles there and the global proliferation of nuclear weapons.

What are the personal stories behind events such as these that make headlines around the world?

In this series of workshops participants will be helped to develop pieces of dramatic writing which reveal the characters that might have been involved directly or indirectly with the events at Greenham. Who were they? What was the nature of their involvement? And, most intriguingly, what was at stake for them?

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors over the age of 11 are required to wear them in the building, unless you are exempt from wearing one. If you remove your mask to eat or drink you must put it back on straight after.

This course will take place in person at the Learning Centre.

Duration: 1pm - 3pm

Course dates: Thursdays, 10 Jun - 15 Jul
