Finding out more about The 306: Day at Glasgow Women’s Library

Our Producer Rebecca visited Glasgow Women’s Library last weekend to hear more about the characters in The 306:Day, their stories and the context for the experiences of women in WW1 from a panel including by feminist, historian and writer Dr Lesley Orr, the play’s writer Oliver Emanuel and composer Gareth Williams.

The work of participants who took part in Silence and Song workshops was also on display in the library, including over 200 embroidered handkerchieves with the names of women effected by the deaths of the 306. It was a fascinating and moving day.
