On Sunday, 1 July, Wincanton Youth Theatre performed their First World War commemorative event, A Long Way to Tipperary. The show included drama set in the trenches from Journey’s End, and both Telegram and Canary Girls portrayed life on the home front. Between these powerful dramas were specially arranged songs from the period, including Keep the Home Fires Burning, A Long Way to Tipperary, and Pack Up Your Troubles. After the two performances, the group donated £213.64 to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal from ticket sales and collection tins. Members of the Wincanton Branch of the Royal British Legion were on hand to receive the money from the youngsters in the group in front of the War Memorial in Wincanton.
