MARTIN BARRY PRESENTS “TIME TO REMEMBER” 1914-1918 THE CENTENARY

A nostalgic look back to the story, the music and comedy of the times, dressed in authentic costumes of the period, re-created live on stage

The people and their stories, throughout tumultuous years, their hardship and their heartbreak, their sadness and their tears bore with courage, even laughter, as they worked and took the strain and they dreamt of kin united, and our land at peace again

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

"Vintage Rock event was amazing with 4 hours of fantastic music it was a sell out - we have re-booked"

Chairman - Longden Village Hall
