JOHN NICHOL 
THE UNKNOWN WARRIOR

Over a million British Empire soldiers died in WWI, with around half still lacking known graves due to the scale of combat and conditions. Former RAF Tornado Navigator John Nichol delves into the story of the Unknown Warrior.

In an emotional personal journey, John Nichol retraces the Unknown Warrior's journey home from the battlefields of Northern France to Westminster Abbey. In this remarkable and highly emotive theatrical experience, brought to life with haunting visuals and an arousing soundscape, the audience will be taken back to these explosive times and experience the fervour of those who have gone before us. 
 
"It is rare to find a tale so strange, intimate and human yet at the same time so enormous, so global in its importance. Yet again John Nichol impresses us with his ability to weave together the little details and the grand narrative." Dan Snow, Historian (Advance review of The Unknown Warrior)
