Projecting the shadows of Buxton’s past on to the town’s present is the idea behind a project to commemorate the First World War.

Buxton puppet theatre group Funny Wonders is asking people to tell them their family stories from the Great War which they can incorporate into a mixed media film called ‘Shadows of War’ about its effect on the town.

The Devonshire Royal Hospital – now the University of Derby Buxton campus – was turned into a hospital where writer Vera Brittain worked, inspiring her book about the conflict’s tragic loss of life.

If there is sufficient response, Funny Wonders would put together an exhibition to accompany a screening of the film in August, followed by an outdoor screening in November.

If you have a story or photos email ali.quas-cohen@funnywonders.org.uk or write to Funny Wonders, 10b St James Terrace, SK17 6HS.
