FREE WW1 DANCE EVENT: Celebrating the East Twickenham Belgian Refugees- Saturday 22 July

14 July 2017 | Pamela Linden

A specially commissioned pop up dance theatre performance, celebrating the history of the Belgian Refugees who lived and worked in East Twickenham during the First World War, will take place as part of the East Twickenham Summer Fair.

Inspired by unique stories of the Belgium refugees who made their home in East Twickenham during the First World War, award-winning choreographer Jennifer Irons has created an evocative new piece of site-specific dance theatre which will bring to life this remarkable chapter of local history and is being performed near the site of the former Pelabon Munitions Works where many of the refugees worked.

Details: Saturday 22 July performances 1.30pm & 3pm- part of the 2017 East Twickenham Summer Fair, Cambridge Gardens, Clevedon Road, Twickenham, TW1 2TA
