Greenham Common – 100 Years of War and Peace

Primetime cameras have been to Greenham Common, site of the famous Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp to provide live camera coverage of a theatrical performance for the Greenham Common Trust and Rosa Productions. The show took place on the original former RAF and USAAF airbase runway and attracted thousands of people interested in the local history.

From the Greenham Trust website: “Paola Dionisotti (RSC, National Theatre, Game of Thrones) led the volunteer and professional performers in an unique dramatic event involving music, mass choirs, dance, live painting, banner processions and re-enactors. The stories told covered the history of the last 100 years at Greenham, including the American arrival in WW2, the Uganda Asians flight from Idi Amin’s Uganda and their arrival at the Greenham airbase and of course the Cold War and peace protests that brought Greenham to international attention.”

There are events ongoing throughout September and October so please visit the Greenham Trust website to find out more.
