This intimate event puts you right in the boots of the brave men who fought for their country in the First World War. Experience life in the trenches for yourself and imagine what it would have been like with the enemy only a field away. Learn more about life as a soldier in the Great War, through stories, poetry and musical accounts and discover the role of our local trawlermen in the war experience. Focussing on the spirited men and women of Nairn, we'll recreate an image of a community fighting for their loved ones both at home and abroad.

The performances on Friday 15 May are aimed at schools, while all members of the public are welcome to enjoy the performances on Saturday 16 May.
