Cheshire East is putting on a day family day of activities, music and stories to commemorate the First World War.
The free event will be held at Tatton Park's Old Hall, Knutsford, on Sunday 26th August.
A Soldier's Story: Tatton Park Remembers
It will include a range of hands-on activities to help uncover the past by tracing a local soldier and his individual wartime story using historical artefact handling, family history research, craft, creative writing and storytelling.
Visitors are being encouraged to bring a picnic to the Cheshire East Reflects family concert, which will feature the Staffordshire Military Wives' Choir, Cheshire's own Foden's Band and Sacred Sounds, which tells the story of British India's involvement in the First World War.
There will also be readings and introductions from Archdeacon of Macclesfield Ian Bishop, Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor Lesley Smetham and Cheshire East Council leader Rachel Bailey.
Cllr Bailey said: "This will be a fantastic and also poignant day of events with lots of hands-on activities for families, gripping stories and inspirational music. We are really proud to be one of the few types of council in Britain to have organised a regular programme of commemorative events throughout the four-year period, to remember those who gave their lives."
More information, and details of how you can take part, can be found on the Cheshire East Reflects website here.
