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.

Cost: Free to schools - Fully Booked
