Planning is in progress for the final 'Voices' event of the World War One Centenary. Voices 1918: Remembrance Day takes place at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) on Queen Square in Bath on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
This will be an evening of readings of poems, letters, diary entries and articles from the War years, presented with images and songs. The performers will be from Bath Poetry Cafe and Walcot State Choir.
The annual commemorative events have been very popular. Poetry 1914, Poetry 1915: The Darkness and The Thunder and The Rain, Voices 1916: Requiem For The World and Voices 1917: Returning We Hear The Larks featured readings of poems, letters, diary entries and newspaper articles from 100 years ago compiled and performed by members and friends of Bath Poetry Cafe. The readings were interspersed with songs presented by singers from Walcot State Choir and illustrated with a slideshow of images.
A particular focus for the 2017 commemoration was the Battle of Passchendaele, 1917. This year's readings will reflect on the impact of the War.
The evenings are free to all with donations invited to support The Royal British Legion.
Details of Voices 1918 will be posted on the WW1 centenary calendar nearer the time.
