A Wartime Christmas -an illustrated talk

11th December 2019 7:00 pm

Lavenham Village Hall

Church St, Lavenham, Sudbury CO10 9QT

With the county providing a temporary home to numerous military personnel and evacuees, this talk explores how people in Suffolk made the most of the festive season despite bombing, personal tragedies, relentless austerity measures, great shortages and the introduction of rationing.

As a large majority of the country’s population maintained “War or no war – this is Christmas” – celebrations were not to be put on hold.
