We really enjoyed this tour of the Buxton dome with our Vera Brittain guide.It gave us a unique insight into the ordeals the real Vera faced nursing WW 1 soldiers whilst she struggled with her own emotions.We were privileged with a special preview.We hope to see it presented in costume later in the year.
