Free WW1 Themed Family Concert PLUS Display of ‘Wiltshire at War’ Exhibition

Thursday, 20 April @ 19:00 - 21:00

Following the hugely successful launch of Wiltshire at War’s recent exhibition, and due to much popular demand, WWI themed writer and singer Louise Jordan will be returning for one night, to perform material from her new album “No Petticoats Here”, which is a project telling the stories of remarkable women of the First World War through song. On the night Wiltshire at War’s exhibition ‘Wiltshire Does its Bit’ will also be on display, which tells the stories of Wiltshire’s community pulling together to do their bit during WWI; from the soldiers at the Front to the people back at home, filling the fields, hospitals, halls and factories with their sweat, toil and care. Everybody in Wiltshire was affected by the war. Everybody was wishing somebody home safe. The efforts of the ‘Home Front’ described here represent some of the ways that Wiltshire as a community came together to contribute to the outcome of The Great War. This will be a night to remember!

Doors open at 630pm for a 7pm start. This is a FREE event!
