It is the closing months of the First World War. The end is in sight, but the troops are being battered at the front. Morale is low having lost many brothers, but spirits are starting to rise after the arrival of the Americans into the trenches.
In an effort to keep chins up, The Back to Front Players of the Royal Medical Army Corps are putting on a concert at the Medical Battalion in St. Julien, to come together for merrymaking during this brief hiatus from battle - a slither of joy and excitement before the darkness of war returns.
This show will be playing some of the best tunes and ditties from the homefront as well as some numbers the troops cooked up – you will be surprised how many songs are familiar!
Starring David Scales as the Captain, Matthew Roberts as the Corporal, Liz Szymczak, Jessica Munna and Liz Starke as the lovely ladies of the Medical Core. Join us in remembrance of the Great War as well as enjoying a wonderful evening of music!
