A Meditation for Remembrance

In this centenary of the end of the First World War we remember the extraordinary sacrifice of one Lincolnshire family. We tell their poignant story through projection, soundscape, narration and chiefly song.

When Reverend PWT Beechey and his wife Amy moved with their growing family to the quiet Lincolnshire village of Friesthorpe, no-one could have foreseen what lay ahead. From the pastoral innocence of a country childhood, the family were plunged into the dark days of the Great War, as one by one the eight sons went away to serve their country. Only three returned. Amy’s Boys tells the heartrending story of a conflict which shattered the Beechey family, and changed the world.

Nothing would be the same again.
