Paradise Court and After Hours
In its tiny corner of the East End, life in Paradise Court is often hard, but never dull. At its heart, the Duke of Wellington, Wilf Parsons presides behind the bar as a pillar of cohesion and strength. In spite of the ever-increasing reality of war, to ‘Duke’, his large, motherless brood of six, and other local families, everyday dramas in the Court still take greater precedence.
Paradise Court marks the start of an unforgettable saga of life in London’s East End – a glorious, heart-warming story of ordinary people set against the backdrop of the Great War, ending in breathtaking suspense as life is held, literally, in the balance. . .
The residents of Paradise Court are picking up the pieces of their lives following World War I. Duke Parsons resolutely serves his customers long after last orders are called until a court order brutally spells the end of an era at the Duke of Wellington. But the folks of Paradise Court have a plan to reinstate Duke to his rightful place regardless of how unconventional the means. . .
