Dispatches from the Frontline is a performed reading of excerpts from the diary of a Victorian nurse, Sister Nan Reay who served on the battlefields of France during the First World War. 

Sister Reay’s dispatches tell the story of the trials and tribulations, but also of personal resilience, courage and persistence of frontline health workers behind the frontlines; traits that resonate in these current troubled times of war and pandemic.

The performance will be followed by afternoon tea and a Last Post Service dedicated to contribution of nurses in conflict zones.
