Sing along to war time classics with the beautiful Memphis Belles, hear readings from local figureheads and enjoy dainty sandwiches and a delicious cream tea at Dunstable’s Grove Theatre,
It’s all happening on Tuesday, November 11 from 10.30am until 2.30pm to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
There will of course be a two minute silence for all those who made the ultimate sacrifice during four years of devastation and destruction.
It was a turning point in history, claiming millions of lives from more than 14 countries and involving almost every continent on earth.
And whether it’s through family ties, local heritage or a keen passion for the past, we still find ourselves connected to this significant event a century after it started.
Grove spokeswoman Becca Henry said: “Many organisations, charities, companies and educational institutions are joining in a global commemoration of this centennial year by hosting events and memorial days to mark this anniversary. We’re delighted to be part of this remembrance season.” She added: “Why not extend your visit by staying on to watch the screening of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp?”
Tickets for the one-off commemorative event are just £12.50, with an additional £3.50 if you stay for the movie.
