Featuring the Trench Choir, a talk by Sir Stephen Sedley and a workshop and performance by Louise Jordan (No Petticoats Here)
Have you ever wondered how troops were persuaded to go into battle, what kept men and women going throughout extraordinary hardships, or how music changed during the course of the First World War?
