Set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918, the film, released this year, reveals the story of a group of British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, as they await their fate. The screening (12A) will be at the church and is free, just turn up on the night. There will be a collection for the charity Combat Stress.
This film begins a week of events, organised by Trinity Arts, which includes a gallery of images and stories, live poetry readings with people dressed as WW1 soldiers, a poignant flower display, video reports, schools participation, silhouettes, talks from special guests, and original artwork. There will also be items from WW1 on display including original cigarette boxes, a cartoon book featuring soldiers, medals and more. Children’s activities will be available, including making a tissue-paper poppy wreath.
