Carlisle Archive Centre hosts wartime play

Schoolchildren from Petteril Bank School in Cumbria are performing a Second World War evacuees-themed marionette puppet show at the Carlisle Archive Centre.

Pupils have made the marionette evacuees as well as producing a soundtrack to the show which has been organised by Cumbria County Council's Archive Service.

A World War 2 'experience' workshop is one of several historical workshops currently running at the centre.

There's also a Tudor workshop, which explores the experiences of two Tudors who lived in Carlisle, finding out what happened to them from their wills inventories.
