We’re upgrading our systems!

We’re pleased to let you know that we’ll have a brand new website and booking system ready for you shortly. It’s something our team have been working on for a long time, and not even COVID-19 could stop us in bringing you this new and improved online experience.

Whilst we are making the necessary changes behind the scenes, we are unable to take any bookings and you won’t be able to login into your account at this time. We expect the new site to be up and running on/around Friday 25 September, so please check back then.

Many thanks for your patience and support at this time.

About Private Peaceful

The Peaceful brothers, Tommo and Charlie, have a tough rural childhood facing the death of their father, financial hardship and a cruel landlord. Their fierce loyalty to each other pulls them through, until one day they both fall for the same girl. And then the Great War comes.

We join 18 year old Private Tommo Peaceful in the trenches as he tells us a story of courage, devotion and sibling rivalry on what may be his last night on earth.

Acknowledged by Michael Morpurgo as his favourite work, this professional premiere is a new ensemble-version by Simon Reade. It tells the story of a country lad fighting a war he doesn’t understand for people he cannot respect.

Private Peaceful was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, won the Red House Children’s Book Award and won the Blue Peter Book Award.
