    1940. The Battle of Britain is raging in the sky above. Germany could invade any day. It is impossible to ignore the rumble of guns and the rumours of spies and fifth columnists. It was one extraordinary burning summer that changed lives forever.

    Find out about the propaganda, pilots, and planes that inspired Lydia Syson’s ‘That Burning Summer’, a novel for teens set in 1940, and take part in a drama workshop led by A Spaniel in the Works exploring life under the threat of invasion.

    ‘RULE ONE: If the Germans come by parachute, aeroplane or ship you must remain where you are. The order is to “stay put”…’

    All ages welcome but most suitable for 9-14 years.
