HOW we remember the First World War is the timely theme for this year’s World Children’s Theatre Day event at Salisbury Playhouse.

The theatre is staging A November Day, which combines puppetry, live music and an ever-changing set to tell a timeless fable of war and friendship when all else seems lost.

In forgotten boxes in an attic, a woman discovers the story of her grandfather, a survivor of the First World War, and his unexpected encounter with a stray dog who knew no boundaries.

A November Day was originally in association with The Imperial War Museum North.

It is designed for children aged 10 and over.

World Children’s Theatre Day celebrates the best of theatre for young people and aims to bring new and exciting shows to theatres across the world, encouraging an early love of drama and performance.

A November Day is being performed in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse on Thursday, March 20 at 11am and 5pm.
