Show of Strength was commissioned to develop a performance piece - 'From Vagrant to VC' - to mark the unveiling of a commemorative stone placed in honour of Thomas Rendle, the Bristol-born hero awarded the Victoria Cross in 1914. The unveiling ceremony took place on 20 November 2014, the centenary of the action for which he received his award. See the News section for details. The audience of over 100 included Bristol's Deputy Lord Lieutenant, the Lord Mayor, senior military personel, Bedminster locals and primary shool children.
Show of Strength has also developed a new workshop, Lives Changed Forever – Bristol & the First World War, in partnership with Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives to accompany the Moved by Conflict exhibition. Suitable for Year 6-11, the workshop explores the impact of the First World War on people’s lives in the city and is available until March 2015.
