Talbot House - a home from home

Talbot House - a home from home

Have your say

Bowhill Theatre plays host to a performance of First World War drama, Talbot House – A Home From Home, on March 27 at 8pm.

The production tells the story of Talbot House in Poperinge, Belgium, a few short miles behind the front line, which became a haven for thousands of allied troops.

Run by a diminutive chaplain named Tubby Clayton, the house became known by its army signaller’s code of Toc H.

The feel-good play gives a brief taste of the atmosphere of the time, with the aid of music and poetry from the Great War.

Tickets for the play are priced £12, with the option of adding theatre supper at 6.30pm for an additional £13 per person.

March also sees the first in a series of beginners guided walks in Bowhill’s woodlands, on March 9, entitled Spring Walk and Talk, with a focus on spring flowers. It takes place between 11am-1pm. Places for the event can be booked by calling 01750 22204 or emailing

Tickets cost of £8, or £20 for the series of three walks, which also include a focus on wildlife and fungi.
