Invite: A Child's War by Lotte Moore - live performance for children - November

Good afternoon,
We'd like to invite you to join hundreds of school children at one of the four special performances of A Child's War by Lotte Moore in honour of Remembrance Day. Schools are invited to purchase tickets for whole classes or year groups to attend to bring the experience of being a child evacuee in WW2 to life for children at this hugely important time of year.

Lotte Moore defies all stereotypes of what it means to be an 80-something year old. She started her author career at the age of 70 and has published (both self-published and traditionally published) 25+ children's and adult books including the best-selling title Lotte's War, on which this play is based. She organises these live performances for schools annually around Remembrance Day, and freely gives her time to read and talk to the children in schools up and down the country. She doesn't believe that age should stop her from doing what she loves - reading to and writing for children - and as one of the last generations to have experienced WW2 first-hand feels it's her duty to share her stories with young people of today.
There's a press release below with more information, but if you'd like to send a reporter, reviewer or photographer down to Chiswick 
on  Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th November and Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th November, or interview the incredible Lotte Moore in advance, please get in touch: Details of how schools can order tickets (just £6 each) are included below also.
