ABOUT THE PROJECT

Salute! is an exciting project that will take place in Haghill on the 28th of June with a lot of free workshops and engagement work in the weeks leading up to it! Would you like to get involved in this fabulous community project? Then keep reading! Here is some more information:

Salute! Home Front Heroes of Haghill is an immersive event which combines theatre workshops and community engagement celebrating the unsung Home Front Heroes of Haghill, in Dennistoun Glasgow during the First World War. Between 1914 and 1919, 875 men and boys from Dennistoun died in World War I. Etta's War is the story of the women and men who fought their own battles on the Home Front and whose lives were changed for ever by “The War to End all Wars”. One hundred years on, with conflict continuing throughout the world, their stories remain relevant to us all and reflect the cultural diversity of those affected by all wars. The play is directed by Mary McCluskey and written by Jack Dickson along with a chorus of community actors and young musicians.

Salute! is a project made to celebrate the women and girls of Haghill – both then and now. We aim to bring the community together so come along alone, with your friends, your partner, your kids or your grandkids; we want to hear your stories or your family’s stories from past generations! The more the merrier!
