Wartime letters between the actress Celia Johnson and her husband Peter Fleming are read by their daughter, Lucy Fleming, together with Simon Williams.
These touching and amusing letters from Celia to her husband tell of her experiences during the war – from coping with a large isolated house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, dealing with rationing, and all the while accepting offers, when she could get away – for David Lean, Noel Coward, wartime propaganda films and ultimately in 1945 starring in the classic film ‘Brief Encounter’
‘It was a joy to discover these letters, and I hope you will find them as funny and moving as I do’ – Lucy Fleming.
Special performance at Carnforth Station Heritage Centre ‘ The Home of Brief Encounter’ – Thursday March 2nd at 7.30pm. Tickets £9 from the Centre
