Students at The King’s School will be marking the centenary of the First World War with an adaptation of the musical Oh What a Lovely War.

The production, at the school's Vanbrugh Theatre from March 12-15, is an entertaining and powerful commentary on the events of the war, built upon the songs that ordinary British soldiers sang during it.
