The Second Minute tour ends 15 June

Friday 6th June 2014

Since it began its tour at the start of May, The Second Minute has touched many people with its heroic and heart-breaking tale of one soldier’s life in World War One.

The show is based on the real life letters of Thomas Swann, an innkeeper’s son from rural Nottinghamshire, whose letters are now held in the archive of the Sherwood Foresters.
