WW1 COMMEMORATIVE CONCERT

The U3A WWI exhibition commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of war on August 4th 1914 included a choral and poetry concert, introduced by a peal of half muffled bells.

The bell ringing and concert were filmed and recorded by project team member Philip James. He edited the bell ringing and produced short films of some of the readings and songs specifically for the website.
