A project recreating the Blitz has won a prestigious national award.
The Coventry performance company Triangle won the Curiosity and Imagination Roots and Wings Award for Coventry Kids in the Blitz, an innovative museum-theatre and film project for primary school children.
About 80 pupils were organised into families and given the names of real people who lived through the Blitz.
The youngsters spent three days preparing to act out an evacuation before being taken for an overnight stay at a billeting hall where they were selected by foster parents.
Triangle artistic director Carran Waterfield described the award as "fantastic news", saying it was recognition of "the unique collaboration between a performance company and a museum and art gallery - a credit to all the children and partner organisations".
Triangle is the resident performance company with Coventry Arts & Heritage. It receives the award in London next month.
