Christmas Truce

While Remembrance Day is still fresh in peoples’ minds Radio Cumbria and Furness Music Centre are inviting everybody to join a commemoration of the 1914 Christmas Truce. This was when enemies shared songs, cigarettes & footy.

Come to Barrow Library on Monday 17th November 5 pm to 6 30 pm if you want to add your voice to the Truce Community Choir for a half-time sing-up at Barrow AFC’s home game on December 20th. There will be another rehearsal on December 15th. Songs will include Only Remembered, Silent Night and a rousing medley of Pack-up Your Troubles/Tipperary.

All are welcome, from novices to professional singers.
