THE work of war poet Wilfred Owen will resonate with train passengers this weekend when St Helens actor Phil Gwilliam recites his moving passages on New Brighton Station.

Phil who portrayed the poet in the West End production Bullets and Daffodils will be giving the readings including Anthem for Doomed Youth, Futility and Dulce et Decorum Est between 10am and noon.

It is a station Shropshire born Wilfred, who spent time living in Birkenhead, would have used many times and is the first in a series of events taking place on platforms across Merseyside.
