"And officials from the Ministry of Defence have assured the public today that the recent troop surge will have no major impact on day to day life. Salford is open for business."

Salford is under attack from the enemy and the British Army have taken up positions to defend it. That's where you, the audience, take centre stage as UN Inspectors. With total access to the facility, you'll hurtle from the VIP tent deep into the war zone for a total sensory experience.

Beyond the Front Line features over 200 Salford students and looks deep into the core of the soldiers' knowledge of being on the front line and how they deal with every experience, both home and away.

This powerful piece explores the friction and ties between the civilian population and the Armed Forces that serve us.

Utterly compelling, Beyond the Front Line is a large-scale, outdoor experience, combining movement and multimedia with explosive narrative.

This show is a promenade piece where seating will not always be available. The show contains pyro effects.

Beyond the Front Line is a unique collaboration between Slung Low, The Lowry, Imperial War Museum North and The University of Salford, which is generously funded by Arts Council England Grants for the Arts.
