“When this lousy war is over
Oh, how happy I shall be.”

(Popular song from the Great War)

As we have done for the past 3 years, we will be commemorating those soldiers who died in 1917. In addition to memorialising by name each individual fatality, we shall be reflecting on how the war affected the lives of local people and those who went away to fight and, too often, to die. As local resident General Sir Antony Walker says, “In 1917, on the front line, casualties continued to mount and at home privations made an increasing impact on everyday lives. But all is not doom and gloom. The seeds of ultimate success began to show even in this darkest year.”

Following a programme of music and poetry commemorating the era, the event will conclude with a reading of the roll-call of the 1917 casualties. The modern day occupiers of their former homes are then invited to add their flags to the Hyde Soldiers commemorative map.

Doors open and drinks served from 6:15pm; performance starts at 6:45pm.

Tickets £8, Hyde900 members £6, invited guests free.

Light refreshments will be served at the end of the event
