"Creating a Culture
of Gentleness"

Poppy Proms in the Park

Saturday 10th November 2018 09:00 - Sunday 11th November 2018 15:00

Events will start at the Memorial Recreation Ground 1914-1918 (commonly known as the Memorial Ground) in Broadstairs on Saturday 10th November 2018, with a living history exhibit of life during 1914-1918 giving everyone a chance to recreate and experience life during the First World War. This exhibit will give a glimpse into the home front and beyond giving specific detail to events in Broadstairs and St Peters. A life size warhorse sculpture created during inclusive art workshops by Bradstow and other local schools will be on display.

Stories from the home front and beyond will be told using acting, dance, song and music. Innovative music workshops for Bradstow and local schools during the preceding months will provide some original pieces in amongst some old favourites. Players of the National Lottery have helped make these workshops and learning opportunities possible. The evening will be a free, collaborative event with local schools, dance companies, inclusive choirs, theatre groups and musicians, bringing all abilities together to bring the Poppy Proms to life, and showcase the previous months of learning.

On Sunday 11th November the Remembrance Day service will be held by the war memorial in town with all groups attending invited to join a reprise of the Poppy Proms at the Memorial Ground and visit the Living History exhibit, open until 3pm.

The whole event will be free, but tickets will be required for the collaborative evening event on the Saturday and the reprise on the Sunday.

We are also asking for volunteers from the community to bring together varied groups who have never worked together before.
