Otherstory worked with a group of local people and Remembering the Real World War 1 to discover untold stories of Bedminster people in the First World War.  Together they created Steps Against War, a history walk with puppets to tell these stories, including 40 Bedminster men who refused to fight: who went to jail, or who took to the hills; the local detective always on their tracks; the women running networks of resistance – and the secret hideaway at the heart of Cannon Street

The film of Steps Against War is by Pru Fowler and Ben Edwards.

Otherstory are particularly delighted to be holding this event at Bedminster Library, where many of their early discoveries were made, with the support of library staff.
