Show marks Napoleon war effort

RED balloons were released on Saturday to recall the 56 men of Dumfries and Galloway who fought and died to defeat Napoleon.

An audience of 100 enjoyed a specially-created children’s performance featuring giant puppets and a pipe band to mark the 200th anniversary of Wellington’s victory at Waterloo.

Waterloo Sunset was created by the Electric Theatre Workshop and took place on Saturday at the Studio One performance space in Munches Street, Dumfries.

Show creator Jack Finlay said: “It was great that we could do something colourful and engaging for children which taught them about an event where men from Dumfries and Galloway helped shape the future history of the whole of Europe.”
