Lest we Forget

Date: 03 November 2018

Location: NEC Birmingham National Exhibition Center, North Ave, Marston Green, Birmingham B40 1NT

Time: 18:00 - 21:00

Children's WW1 Centenary Concert

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 the Armistice bringing the hostilities of the first World War to an end was signed. This war was perhaps the deadliest conflict in human history with over 40 million people being killed or wounded as a direct consequence. A year later the tradition of Remembrance Day was inaugurated with the purpose to remember and commemorate those who had died in what was often referred to as 'the War to end all Wars'. Whilst Remembrance Day has continued year upon year, the hope that the war would bring an end to all wars has still to be realised. If that hope is ever to be fulfilled it must be planted and nurtured within the hearts of everyone, but most importantly within the hearts of today's children.


This first National Children's Remembrance Concert will, through music, song and drama, remember and pay homage to the sacrifice of all who fought and died in that terrible War. It will also seek to instil anew the hope of an end to all war. To achieve these purposes the concert will bring together over 2500 children from across England and Wales, each and every one to play an active and vital role within it. Our ambition for these children, and for all those who come to see and hear them, is that the concert will be a memorable experience and that the homage, hope and message of the Concert will remain forever within their hearts.


The focal point of the concert will be a Mass choir of over 2000 children dressed to resemble two giant poppies. They will be supported by an Orchestra of 160 Young Musicians from the B’Ham Youth and Ealing Youth Orchestras, the National Youth Pipe and Drum Band (debut), the Sandwell Youth Brass Hand, B’ham Acoustic Guitar Group, The Leicestershire Show Choir, the Hywel Girls’ choir and Hywel Boy Singers plus Angelicus Celtis, performers from Norfolk, Bournemouth and Sutton Coldfield and a Parade of 57 Flags by Scouts and Guides.
Music will include Mars, Nimrod, Cavatina, Silent Night, Hymn to the Fallen and popular songs from the trenches and home front. The Concert pays homage to the 40 million military and civilian deaths and casualties of all nations including the 540,000 children killed, to the role and sacrifices by women and non-combatants, and will also pay tribute to the many millions of animals that were killed in the conflict including nearly 8 million horses and mules. Large Screens will be used.


The music, songs and associated images have been carefully selected and sequenced to tell the story of the war so as to extend factual knowledge and understanding of the war and to enhance empathy for all who were affected by it and its consequences. There are moments of joy and moments of sadness, of emotion and reflection, of suffering and survival, and of remembrance and gratitude. It will be above all a concert for all and which commemorates and remembers all.

Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music.

BBC Radio will broadcast live from the heart of the event at Tobacco Dock throughout the three days, ahead of live concerts each evening featuring high-profile BBC Music Introducing alumni and guests.

James Stirling, Head of Content, BBC Music says: “BBC Music Introducing LIVE will be a unique event, drawing on the passion and experience of the entire UK Music Industry and providing unrivalled access for those aspiring to make their way in to the business.” 

Jason Carter, Director, Get On Vision says: “I was incredibly fortunate to have worked on the creation and launch of BBC Music Introducing back in 2007, and to steer its path for a decade, so it’s a privilege to lead the production of BBC Music Introducing LIVE at Tobacco Dock - the next exciting chapter in the journey of a critical platform for emerging talent in the UK.”

Emma Banks, Co-Head, CAA London: “BBC Music Introducing is a great spring board for so many up and coming British artists and talent looking to work in the music industry.  Last year's Amplify event gave a lot of people an insight into various areas of the music business and it looks as if the BBC is going to push that even further with Live '18.  It's tough to get a foot in the door and to gather industry professionals and artists together in this way will be an incredible opportunity for artists and industry to meet and hopefully be able to work together.  This sounds like a great event and gets my most thorough endorsement.”

David Joseph, Chairman and CEO Universal Music UK, says: “Last year’s Amplify event captured the essence of BBC Music Introducing, which has done so much for undiscovered and unsigned musicians over the past 10 years. We were proud to support several masterclasses for the next generation of artists and executives at Amplify and look forward to doing so again at November’s expanded event.”

Jason Iley, Chairman and CEO, Sony Music UK & Ireland, says: “BBC Music Introducing is a perfect example of the BBC’s principles – to inform, educate and entertain.  It has played a huge role in introducing some extraordinary new talent, George Ezra among them, to the music loving public.”

Vanessa Reed, CEO, PRS Foundation, says: “BBC Music Introducing LIVE is a great idea that we’re proud to endorse. We look forward to contributing funding tips and expertise to the event’s programme of panels and masterclasses and to taking part, with other industry bodies and artists, in this important platform for anyone interested in music discovery and collaboration. 

Michael Dugher, UK Music CEO, says: “We’re proud to support this brilliant new event from BBC Music, which helps promote a diverse range of exciting new artists in such a vibrant venue. BBC Music is great champions of the live sector, which contributes £1 billion a year to our economy, and BBC Introducing has an incredible track record for producing great new talent. It’s fantastic to see the BBC launching a new event, building on the success of last year’s BBC Music Introducing Amplify.”

Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive BPI & BRIT Awards, says: “The support of BBC Music is incredibly important as labels seek to discover, nurture and invest in fresh UK talent. BBC Music Introducing plays a pivotal role in this ecosystem by giving unsigned and emerging talent the opportunity to build profile and awareness that can take them to the next level.  It’s great to see this exciting new live event announced as an extension of the BBC Introducing brand, and we welcome BBC Music’s unwavering commitment to new music discovery.”
