On Saturday 8 March we invited you to share your stories, memories and artefacts that link your family to the First World War.
We held the event as part of our activity remembering the centenary of the First World War and our production of The Christmas Truce.
Contributors met our creative team, including director of The Christmas Truce, Erica Whyman, and writer Phil Porter. Contributors shared stories, photographs, letters and artefacts to help build a picture of local people's connections to those who fought, and those who stayed at home, 100 years ago.
Talking about the day, Erica said: 'It's a story that is deeply rooted in local history, so we'd both really like to hear from people from the area who have something to tell us about their family's connection with the First World War and The Royal Warwickshire Regiment. We can't promise that these stories will make their way into the play, but they will certainly help us in shaping it.'
