“On Christmas Eve, 1914, tens of thousands of young men from several nations, found themselves in northern France and Belgium, entrenched in a bloody battle with the confident belief that it would be all over by Christmas.

In this unspeakable horror, they somehow found the inner spirit to lay down their Lee-Enfield and Mauser rifles, and exchanged them for ‘Long Way to Tipperary’ and ‘Deutschland uber alles’. As the singing continued, they began to celebrate the season with ‘Tannenbaum’ and ‘Wenceslas’. Through music, they did what their commanders could not; they declared a truce.

This singular and miraculous event has been much celebrated in the century since. Join us, on the centenary of the armistice of World War 1, as we celebrate the uniting power of music and remember those who fought for our future.
