The Battle of the Somme was one of the largest battles of World War I, in which more than 1,000,000 men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
A unique film showing this battle will be accompanied by a live performance from the Sutton Youth Symphony Orchestra who will perform a new score, especially created for the Battle of the Somme footage in a special free concert.
“Due to the nature of the film, we recommend a minimum age of 12 yrs for anyone attending the event.
Please note that this event is also being recorded and photographed. By attending, you are giving your permission to be filmed,” said a spokesperson.
“And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective” Geoff Brown, The Times. *****
