Event 2: The Servicemen of Queen’s Park

Walter MacFarlane Stage

Come and discover the newly revealed stories behind the servicemen from Queen’s Park who died in the First World War. A team of local residents led by Steve Crabb has been researching their stories – where they lived in the parish, their family backgrounds, what jobs they did before they went to war whether they were married and had children, where they served, when and where they died and where they are buried or commemorated.

Their moving stories can now be shared for the first time in this exclusive event for Queen’s Park Book Festival. The event will be enriched by selected poetry readings by actors Nick Barber and Alex Blake from the local theatre company Palimpsest.
