The concert will feature the premier of a brand new piece of music, commissioned especially for Tamworth. ‘War Child’ has been composed by Sophy Smith and conducted by Dan Watson – the same team who wrote the original score for last year’s outdoor production of Tigress in the Castle Grounds. The new music will be performed by Tamworth Voices, Tamworth Male Voice Choir, Tamworth Ladies Choir, Tamworth Arts Club and Flax Hill Junior School.

We Will Remember will also raise money towards the repair of the clock on St Editha’s Church which has not been working properly for over a year. Half of the proceeds from the concert will go towards the fund to get the clock ticking on time again.

Other performers during the evening will include the William MacGregor Primary School Choir, talented local singer Matilda Pratt and Staffordshire’s first Poet Laureate, Mal Dewhirst, who has written a new commemorative poem for the occasion.

In addition to the original piece of music, audiences will be treated to a variety of songs from the past including Keep the Home Fires Burning, It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Pack up Your Troubles and Over the Rainbow. Members of Tamworth Arts Club will also perform a special extract from Oh What a Lovely War.
