Daily every day, at various intervals, 25 mins | Price £tbc

The Trench returns this year by popular demand. It’s late May 1940 and on the one hill in Flanders that juts out above the surrounding French countryside, a small detachment of British infantry is desperately trying to stem the German advance.

Holed out on a chalky outcrop with the bulk of the British Expeditionary Force, you  might well be able to get back to Dunkirk and from there to England. Much depends on these few men…

Learn about Cassel 1940, the heroic defence by the men of the Gloucesters and the Ox & Bucks, and experience first-hand the conditions and what it was like to be there in those desperate days of May 1940.
