The Criterion Theatre

Local WWII hero shares his experiences with the cast and crew of Flarepath

24th June

The theatre was honoured to be in the presence of a WWII hero and local man Ken Thomas who came along to meet the cast and crew of Flarepath at their Long Sunday tea. Now 97 years old, Ken shared his experiences of, and answered questions about, being a bomber pilot in the war. Photographs were taken with the cast, the most poignant being those with the cast playing Lancaster bomber air crew just like him in the play.
