July 2nd 1998 Sandfield Theatre. City of Nottingham Arts Plus Education in partnership with William Sharp School, Bilborough, Nottingham & Melbury Primary School, Bilborough, Nottingham Written by Raymond Briggs, ' When The Wind Blows ' was the culmination of a drama project inspired by the book & video of the same name. Two elderly people, Hilda & James are caught up in a nuclear explosion and its aftermath. Isloated in their senior years both Hilda & James are blissfully unaware of the impending disaster. Apart from offering students an intensive arts experience, this project also emphasized the importance of teamwork, shared planning, discipline, commitment, co-operation and the ultimate responsibility needed for public performance.
