Free family day marking work of county's World War One project

Harry Leach 30th Jul, 2018

A FREE family day marking the work of the Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme is to be held on Saturday, August 4.

Running from 10am to 4pm there will be music from the Trench Choir, WWI craft activities and moving readings of WWI letters, plus screenings of re-mastered films of the conflict recorded during the war.

Led by the county’s Archive and Archaeology Service, the Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme received one of the largest Heritage Lottery Fund Grants outside of London, and for the last four years has been commemorating the role Worcestershire played in World War One.

Younger visitors can join in with poppy printing and making activities, while there will be displays from the home front as well as objects and research telling stories of the men who fought from across the county.

During the day visitors will also be able to watch the recently re-mastered The Battle of the Ancre and the Advance of the Tanks (1917), a little-known masterpiece which documents the autumn and winter stages of the Somme campaign.

The film is accompanied by a specially commissioned score by Laura Rossi.

The event is at Worcester Guildhall on Worcester High Street, WR1 2EY
