Jen Henry, 2007 Fellow, runs Cheshire Rural Touring Arts which organises professional theatre, music and dance shows at various rural locations. This autumn, the company will be presenting the young Winston Churchill called 'Winston on the Run' by Fol Espoir Theatre. It is the true story of young Winston's escape as a prisoner of War camp in Africa in 1899. The show is performed by Feddie Machin and the show will conclude with a question and answer session with Freddie during which he will talk about the letters, photos and archive material that inspired the show.

There will be two performances in Cheshire – on the 14th September it will be held at Bradwall Village Hall, near Sandbach, at a cost of £6 per ticket. Please email bradwallvillagehall@gmail.com or call Carol Cameron on 01270 759635 and quote Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. The second performance will be on 15th September at Nantwich Players Theatre at a cost of £5.50 per ticket. Please call 01270 537359 and quote Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
