The Thornycroft Girls

Milly and Tilly work in the Thornycroft factory helping to create the vehicles. The men have gone off to war and women have realised that they have the power to become chefs, farmers, plumbers, train drivers and mechanics. The Thornycroft Girls is a 25 min show about the munitions workers of the war. In this interactive show, everyone is welcome to come and meet The Thornycroft Girls and watch them make a life sized kit car which children can actually ride in. The show is based on the real lives of the Thornycroft girls who worked in the factory in Basingstoke where they built tanks and bullets!
