In Voice and Verse

blank Armistice Armistice

A tribute in words, music & imagery.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the ending of WW1 we showcase songs written and performed during the war years of 1914-18. Reflecting the change of mood back home, we place these with testaments, in poetry and first hand accounts, of life on the Front Line from those who fought and those who nursed.

Commemorating this world changing event of 100 years ago, to which everyone living then and now have been affected, it offers a powerful and illuminating window into British cultural history.

Songs including 'Take me back to dear old Blighty', 'Keep the home fires burning', 'Oh! It's a lovely war' with spoken pieces from Rudyard Kipling, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon amongst others.

Run Time: Approximately 1 hour with no interval.
During the performance we project a selection of images & texts.
