Armistice centenary 03

On Saturday 10th November a presentation at St Mary's Church will mark the centenary of the end of World War I.

The first half of the double bill is 'Music for Remembrance' by Britten, Elgar and Jenkins, directed by David Quinn

The second half of the programme is a play 'After the War was Over', researched, written and directed by Margaret Watkins.

The play is a sequel to the First World War play Margaret wrote to commemorate the beginning of the war in 1914. With a cast featuring many well known local faces and supported by Haddenham Players, the play follows the story of how the village of Haddenham came to terms with the loss of 50 men and boys in the 1914-18 war.

The performances will staged at 2.30pm and again at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available, priced £12, at Blooming Fruity and the Community Library or at www.haddenhamplayers.co.uk
