PALs, presented by Sprungsters, is an emotional and dynamic performance in commemoration of WW1 combining dance and raw physicality to explore the true stories of the PALs regiments from Coventry and Warwickshire, and the experiences of young people at war.

PALs follows the story of a group of Coventry friends whose friendship is tested and torn apart by their experiences of war. Told from the perspective of a conscientious objector PALs examines the impact of the war on the lives of the young people who gave up everything for King and country.
