Script of Performance recorded live by B.B.C. Radio at The Arboretum, Lincoln on 26th July, 2014.

The promenade performance featured The Band of The Royal Anglian Regiment, R.A.F. College Cranwell Military Wives Choir, Scunthorpe and District Pipe Band and a cast of professional and student actors performing the story of the Beechey family and their experience of sending eight brothers to war, of whom only three survived.

Additional Information:Leaving Home was a three part investigation of the impact of the outbreak of the First World War on the Beechey Family (Friesthorpe and Lincoln), which lost five of its eight sons to the war. The three separate outputs were the Radio Drama, a Concert Performance in the Lincoln Arboretum (26th July, 2014) and at Friesthorpe (3rd and 4th August, 2014). All three were recorded for Radio, and the Friesthorpe performances were also filmed by the B.B.C. and are being edited for transmission. Leaving Home forms part of an ongoing investigation into the role of performance in commemoration
