Arcus Theatre Company

Hello and welcome to our site. We're Christine and Peter and together we're Arcus Theatre Company, based in Wokingham, Berkshire in England. We specialise in giving illustrated talks on subjects surrounding the Great War of 1914-1918. Our presentations include a slide show, poetry, music and the opportunity to join in by singing along or sharing your memories. No audience is too large or too small!
