80 years ago on this date (10th July, 1940), The Battle of Britain began…
June 2000 – for eighty-year old Peter Walker, ex-Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin.
As he re-lives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far!
Personal, charming, funny and inventive, ‘Spitfire Solo’ blends theatre, music and film. Ex-RSC and West End actor Nicholas Collett plays a multitude of characters and recreates the Battle of Britain – onstage!
In association with the RAF Benevolent Fund
