3.00pm – Festival Drama
Peter Florence: The Pity of War
In a special, dramatised reading to mark the Centenary of the Armistice in November 2018, old friend of Lower Machen Peter Florence – mastermind of Hay’s annual festival – returns with a revival of his celebrated portrayal of tragic war-poet Wilfred Owen. Killed in the last days of the Great War, Owen’s poetry provided the most anguished testimony to the horror of the trenches.
