11 Oct 2018
An uplifting evening of beautiful music, poignant readings and thoughtful reflections to mark 100 years since the end of WW1, the formation of the RAF and to recognise the contribution made by the people of Gloucestershire.
The first half will focus on remembrance, acknowledging the journey of those who served, who sacrificed and survived, with the second half featuring uplifting and stirring music with the theme of hope and celebration.
Featuring the D-Day Darlings fresh from ITV's Britain's Got Talent, Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra, supported by Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir and joined by distinguished speakers to include BAFTA Fellowship recipient and war correspondent, Kate Adie CBE and compéred by BBC's Steve Knibbs. All proceeds will help fund Alabaré’s Gloucestershire Homes for Veterans and the ABF: The Soldiers’ Charity.
As part of the evening’s celebrations, we would like to pay tribute to the contribution made by local people and incorporate images in a video presentation. We are looking for the stories of those from Gloucestershire who served during the First World War. Therefore we are calling on the public to provide us with photographs of family members or friends who were in the military during WWI to use on the night. If you have a story or photograph that we would be able to use, please contact - email@example.com
Tickets: Front Nave £20; Rear Nave £15; Side aisles £10 – tickets includes a complimentary glass of wine/soft drink during the interval.
