The popular song Roses of Picardy was penned by British officer Frederick E. Weatherley (music by Haydn Wood) in 1916.
The song was invariably sung by British soldiers who had left behind a sweetheart when they enlisted for the Front in France and Flanders, and as such forms the backdrop for this very special centenary concert to commemorate the Great War.
The programme has been sensitively selected to take the audience back 100 years, representing the hopes and aspirations of the time.

Date & Time: Saturday 8th November 2014, 7.30pm
