    Oh What A Lovely War may sit under the banner of ‘musical entertainment’ but it is so much more than that.  This now iconic show delivers humour and heartache in equal measure, sweeping audiences on an emotional roller-coaster through four years in history while compelling us to reflect on the huge sacrifices made during the First World War from the perspective of the ordinary soldier.

    SOS is delighted to present Oh What A Lovely War in 2018 as its own contribution to Southampton’s calendar of events marking the centenary of WWI.  A retiring collection will be held after each performance in support of the British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
