Friday 25th November 2016 - 3pm
Location: Concert Hall, Skipton Town Hall

No Petticoats Here shares the stories, through song, of remarkable women who lived during the First World War: one who dressed as a man and became a soldier; women who rescued airmen from No Man's Land; inventors, engineers, factory workers. Inspirational women, working in a time of conflict, leaving a legacy.

Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan brings these extraordinary stories to life through a combination of thought-provoking songs, diary extracts, anecdotes and choruses you'll be singing on your way home.

How was one woman able to join the British Expeditionary Force and fight on the Western Front? What were conditions really like for women making the weapons of war? Who were the two million surplus women? What became of the female spy working for the British in German occupied France?
