Working in Shadows – Archive film screening with live musical accompaniment

It’s 1943 and it’s all hands to the pump on the Home Front.

When the Second World War was declared in 1939, the female population of Britain were called upon to fill all manner of roles. Women stepped up on the Home Front and abroad, which saw their lives drastically change.   

Elliott’s of Newbury was a manufacturing firm whose workforce, during the 1940s, was predominantly female. The factory was adapted to war work, and amongst other things was responsible for producing various Spitfire components as one of many Shadow Factories.  The firm commissioned a series of films from this period.  These films are held in the extensive collection of Hampshire County Council’s Wessex Film & Sound Archive. 

An unmissable opportunity to see archive footage that has not been publicly shared in over 75 years; brought to life with an exclusive improvised live score.

This project has been made possible thanks to funding from the BFI’s Film Audience Network

Venue information/Access

If you have any questions about any of the following facilities then please email our Front of House Manager via house.manager@raods.org.uk.

Access to the auditorium may be gained by stair lift and we can accommodate a limited number of wheelchairs in the front row. If you wish to use the lift or have difficulty in climbing the stairs to the auditorium, please notify the Box Office of your requirements when booking tickets so that suitable seats can be allocated and Front of House staff notified.

The maximum weight capacity for the lift means that we are unable to accommodate powered wheelchairs on the lift.

If you have difficulty climbing stairs, it is recommended that you book seats for the front row, as there are also stairs within the auditorium.

If you are a wheelchair user attending a show in the man auditorium, please arrive at the Plaza thirty minutes before the show starts, as use of the stair lift temporarily blocks one of the main auditorium access stairways. Thank you.

Guide Dogs are allowed in the auditorium. Please notify the Box Office if you wish to bring a guide dog so that suitable space can be allocated.

A Sennheiser transmission system is installed in the auditorium to help patrons who have difficulty hearing. The lightweight unit has a stethoscope-type earpiece. It is easy to operate and comfortable in use. Please ask at the Box Office to borrow one of these units, and you will be shown how to use it. Please return it to the Box Office after use. There is no charge for the use of the headsets. This unit operates in the auditorium only.
