To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion and Armistice Day which falls on the 11/11/11, Audlem Special Events Team is holding a wartime exhibition of village life for local schoolchildren and the general public on that day in the Public Hall.
There will be no charge for admission.
The exhibition will feature a 25-minute film which many children and adults in the village have been involved in making. We have heard early reports that this is a film that must be seen. Our picture, by Alison Wood, was taken during filming.
ASET is also organising a Wartime Dance on the 11th. The Trent River Big Band will be playing dance classics from the 1940’s so get out your glad rags, or seamed stockings, and get “In the Mood” for a night to remember.
Doors will open at 7.15pm for anyone wishing to view the short film portraying Audlem lives during the war years, produced by the Audlem 5A Drama Group (25 minutes).
Music starts at 8.00 pm prompt. Dancing is not compulsory so just come along and soak up some of the best 1940's music. Period dress is entirely optional.
A bar will available and tickets are just £8.00 and can be reserved at Audlem Post Office or online at firstname.lastname@example.org
