Nelson Musical Theatre presents a new production of Oh What a Lovely War to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

The landmark satirical musical is an entertaining and exuberant ride through the ironies and tragedies of the First World War.

A madcap orchestra of musicians, dancers, singers and clowns will come armed with sketches songs and stories for your entertainment. Sombre buffoonery and musical ingenuity collides with the bawdy, tough humour of the squaddies on the front line to take you on an incredible journey across Europe. From the misplaced optimism of the British home front to the blood-soaked fields of Flanders, the story is told through a fantastic collection of irreverent and poignant songs including well known favourites ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’, ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’ and ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’.

Created in 1963 by the maverick director Joan Littlewood and her revolutionary company Theatre Workshop, Oh What A Lovely War is a truly original portrait of the conflict that changed the shape of our world forever.
