3rd November 2018 - The Great War Remembered

A concert from Beverley Minster commemorating the centenary of the Armistice in 1918

Beverley Town Council is presenting an afternoon of music, song, poetry and special memories to be performed by Fallen Leaves, Humberside Police Concert Band, Four Candles and Cherie Lawrence at Beverley Minster on Saturday 3rd November 2018 at 2pm– in commemoration of the centenary of the end of the “war to end all wars”.

The performance will commemorate the life, times, the courage and commitment of men women from East Riding of Yorkshire and those from overseas who served, died and were affected by war. The concert will offer time to reflect and give thanks to our fallen heroes.

It will also include a wide variety of music including well-known favourites plus the opportunity for the audience to join in with old favourites such as Keep the Home Fires Burning and Roll out the Barrel.

The event is being organised by Beverley Town Council and they thank Beverley Minster for providing the majestic venue in which, the Poppy Installation and displays will be on view in the Minster along with a ‘There But Not There Tommy’.  A collection will be made for the Royal British Legion.

The Mayor of Beverley said, ‘’The Great War Remembered centenary concert is a way for Beverley folks to come together and say thank you for all those people that were lost and suffered from our town and the beyond. We especially remember the people of Beverley who gave their lives and suffered to give us our freedom. The concert is free to attend and the Minster is a large building so lets us fill it with people in praise and thanks to them all. Any funds gathered will be donated to Royal British Legion who will be giving poppy crosses to write the names of loved ones and past family members that were involved in the WW1. The performers will be paying a fitting tribute to the life and times so please come along and support this memorable event’’.

Helen Watson Town Clerk said,’’ We would like to thank Beverley Minster , Humberside Police Concert Band, The Four Candles, Fallen leaves and Cherie Lawrence for coming together with Beverley Town Council to facilitate the Great War Remembered in the centenary concert. Here we remember the bravery of those who fought, lived and died in the First World War as we continue to honour all those who served, died and were affected by the war both at home and overseas.
