On Sunday the Three Crows Theatre group will present ‘Home Fires — the Broken Sons’ at the Victoria Hall at 2pm and 5pm. Tickets are free and can be collected at Helensburgh Library in West King Street.

It features theatre, music and poetry bringing the war to life with tales from the Home Front and the stark contrast with the horrors of the trenches.
