Presented as part of Durham Remembers.

It’s 1916. Your country needs you, the army needs you… You join one of thousands of County Durham men in enlisting in the army, volunteering to fight for your country. You say goodbye to your family and get ready for war.

1916: No Turning Back is unlike anything seen before at Gala, and forms part of Durham Remembers, our programme of events commemorating The Battle of the Somme. This truly immersive experience will see our auditorium transformed to vividly recreate the sights, sounds and smells of life for a First World War soldier. You will accompany a new recruit on his journey, as he volunteers, trains for the front, endures the trenches, trembles under shell fire, attacks enemy lines, and eventually experiences a sense of loss, returning home a changed person.

This is a fascinating insight into the experiences of those who went to war. Parental guidance advised.

Approximate running time: 40 minutes.
