THE NATIONAL JUSTICE MUSEUM COMMEMORATES THE CENTENARY OF WWI WITH A SPECIAL EVENING OF STORIES BY ACCLAIMED PERFORMERS THE WOOLLY TELLERS
 
Reflecting on conflicts from 1918 to the present day, David Brookes and Mick Whysall, who write and perform as The Woolly Tellers, will present a new show ‘Voices’ at the National Justice Museum on the eve of Armistice Day. Featuring tales of those in uniform and the civilians on the home front, The Woolly Tellers interpret stories, tales and anecdotes with humanity and humour.  
 
One of their tales explores the courage and tenacity of the Canary Girls at the National Shell Filling Factory at Chilwell. Nicknamed Canaries because the TNT dyed their skin yellow and turned their hair green, the workers witnessed one of the deadliest explosions of WWI, where 134 were killed, and yet returned to work the following day. Tragically WWI was not to be ‘the war to end all wars’ and the evening explores many other narratives, telling tales of the brave fire watchers and air raid wardens of WW2, and the human cost of more recent conflicts.

David Brookes and Mick Whysall are both experienced storytellers and joined forces as The Woolly Tellers after performing with the Story Tellers of Nottingham. Each with a distinctive style and delivery they have captivated audiences in Nottingham and beyond.
