Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

AU­DI­ENCES took a step back in time thanks to a con­cert of wartime mu­sic.

The Ger­rards Cross Memo­rial Cen­tre held a con­cert en­ti­tled For the Fallen at the Ger­rards Cross Memo­rial Cen­tre on Satur­day, July 19 and Sun­day, July 20.

The show fea­tured mu­sic from 1914 un­til the present day, high­light­ing the hu­man sac­ri­fice and brav­ery of the armed forces as well as the civil­ians on the home front.

It was nar­rated by Alan Brown with pro­jected news flashes and ex­cerpts of ra­dio and TV news and in­cluded a live band and a team of singers.

The con­cert was held in the run up to the 100th an­niver­sary of the start of the First World War on Mon­day.
