Southport arts group to host Remembrance Weekend multimedia exhibition
As part of the ongoing 100 Years commemorations to mark the end of World War One, Southport based group Trinity Arts are putting together a special exhibition on the Great War.
This year marks the centenary of the end of World War One and, as a mark of remembrance, Trinity Arts, based at Holy Trinity Church on Hoghton Street, will be putting on a special display featuring Southport stories and photos of the time.
There will also be dance, drama, talks, poetry, a special service, and silhouettes.
Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust granted the maximum number of Silhouettes for use, as part of its national aim to bring communities together to “remember those who went to war and did not return.”
Taking place on the weekend of November 10 & 11, the exhibition also includes:
- Live poetry readings with people dressed as WW1 soldiers.
- Original artwork
- Items from WW1 on display including original cigarette boxes, a cartoon book featuring soldiers, medals and more.
Bob Ball, Secretary of Trinity Arts, said, “Obviously this Remembrance is especially important as it marks 100 years since the end of World War 1 and we wanted to do something special to commemorate that moment.
“We had men from Holy Trinity go to war, and not return, and so the award of the Silhouettes is really wonderful as this will bring home to people the poignancy of those times.”
