A CON­FER­ENCE com­mem­o­rat­ing the centennial of the Great War will take place in Dunoon.

Kick­ing off the two-day event will be Trevor Royle, who will talk about Ar­gyll res­i­dents who were in­volved in the bat­tle.

The event is on Oc­to­ber 6-7 in the Burgh Hall, with a free ex­hi­bi­tion from Oc­to­ber 2.

The or­gan­is­ers say it is very much a com­mu­nity event, with lo­cal art groups, eight schools, a choir, Men’s Shed, Vet­er­ans and Cadets as well as many in­di­vid­ual res­i­dents tak­ing part.

The Stu­dio Cin­ema will show a film from 1922: A Couple of Down and Outs – the orig­i­nal War Horse Story, as well as Spiel­berg’s mod­ern ver­sion.

There will also be a con­cert fea­tur­ing mu­sic from the time and two show­ings of a spe­cially -com­mis­sioned play ti­tled Home Fires, Bro­ken Sons.
