Weston at War

Weston at War – Presentation by John Crockford-Hawley

BUY TICKETS

The 80th anniversary of D-Day and Weston’s favourite historian and Heritage Champion  “JCH” takes us through those memorable years 1939-1945 with big-screen illustrations and his own inimitable style of presentation.
John attracts capacity audiences: “It’s the way he tells it – always fascinating” 
100 Westonian killed, 8000 homes, 600 shops and 90 public buildings damaged or destroyed.
“We could see pilots’ eyes as they machine gunned along the Boulevard”.
Eisenhower, Churchill and King George visit. Heroism, sadness, jealousy, profiteering and a jazzy music scene. The whole story – dollars, nylons, race, rare plants and women pilots included!
