Sun 22 May 2022

An Evening of wartime letters between the actress Celia Johnson and her husband Peter Fleming read by their daughter, Lucy Fleming, and Simon Williams. These touching letters from Celia to her husband tell of her experiences during the war – from coping with a large house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, rationing, becoming an auxilliary policewoman and acting - ultimately in the 1945 classic Brief Encounter. Peter Fleming was away for most of the war - he writes about his adventures working on deception in the Far East. Not only are the letters highly engaging, but they also provide a fascinating historical insight.
