The latest in a series of Sefton Council funded events has been announced to help commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One.
‘Lest We Forget – A Night To Remember’ will be hosted by The Royal British Legion’s Crosby Branch, in partnership with Sainsbury’s, and features music and poetry readings to evoke emotive memories of life during World War One.
The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson, will be present to officially open the evening, which features war poets, songs to raise morale and poems and readings that help recall the most emotional recollections of the Great War.
Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “This year marks the centenary of the end of World War One and we are proud to be able to support various local legions in supporting our communities.
“These events, from quiz nights to poetry readings, go hand in hand with our Beyond The War Memorials campaign as we look to honour our WW1 heroes and heroines from across the geographical area which now makes up Sefton.
The poetry and music evening takes place at St Helen’s Church, Alexandra Road, Crosby on Friday November 2 from 7pm.
Tickets are on sale now from the customer service desk at Sainsbury’s Superstore, Liverpool Road, Crosby.
