As Seeds of Hope continues in the Walled Garden, The Bothy and Below Stairs, six characters bring to life stories from the Harewood estate 100 years ago.
George is John’s older brother, away fighting on the frontline. His letters to John from the brutal trenches are our window in to the realities of war.
We learn that George is a young man in love with nature and gardening, who misses the House and gardens at Harewood so much. His letters home to John include everyday comments on the weather, gossip, cricket and how the year’s harvest is doing – a man trying to stay upbeat, whilst giving an increasingly honest and emotional insight into what he’s facing on the frontline.
The story of George’s fight to serve his country is at the heart of Seeds of Hope.
Seeds of Hope continues until 4 November.
