Soldier Stories: Live Interpretation

Walter Tull character actor
Meet characters, both real and imagined, from the Army’s past and hear their amazing stories in our galleries.

Watch history come to life in front of your eyes in one of our 30-minute character actor performances. Each Sunday, one of the following characters will be performing. 

  • Walter Tull: a professional footballer and one of the British Army’s first infantry officers of black heritage. Hear his story from the football pitch to the trenches of the First World War.
  • Sister Evelyn Morgan: a nurse newly arrived in France as part of the 1944 Normandy Landings. Listen as she prepares a field hospital and gets ready to treat wounded soldiers. 
  • Benny Jones: a soldier from 2 Commando. Watch him putting new recruits through their paces, as they train for a top-secret Second World War mission.

  • 11.00am - 11.30am
  • 12.00pm - 12.30pm
