It's an idyllic summer in 1914 rural Lancashire. Excitement is building for Wakes week; a rest from field and mill and a celebration of the Rushbearing Festival with singing, courting, drinking and dancing. The looming war barely registers... but it will. An August Bank Holiday Lark is a gentle, deeply moving drama poised at the tipping point of war. Intensely nostalgic and emotionally rich, this is a story that will both entertain and tug at your heart strings.
