Below you will see information about a current extra attraction at the Tower. The professional actors have an important role at the Tower. In Poppies, Pomp and Poppies, I wrote 'While the event was enjoyable and entertaining, people were also serious about learning and sharing the authentic value of what was on show.
As with other activities at the Tower, the actors involved take it very seriously and professionally; this is not ‘second-rate’ theatre, but playing an important part in telling the stories. The Yeoman body has perfected this and rightly remains central – they are what people come from all over the world to see, so the drama activities enhance this, adding a further dimension and encouraging visitors to come more often for the varying programme.'
