In November, multi award-winning choirs Peterborough Male Voice Choir and Peterborough Voices will commemorate the region’s fallen soldiers and the service and sacrifice of the armed forces with Festival of Remembrance, a moving evening of beautiful melodies and poignant words for Remembrance Sunday.

Taking place at St Nicholas’ Chapel King’s Lynn, in support of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, this promises to be a memorable evening, particularly so in this 75th anniversary year of the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy, one of the most remarkable allied wartime operations, when men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and re-establish freedom.

While paying tribute to soldiers from America, Britain, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, Norway, Poland and Australia who fought to defend Britain’s freedoms, values and way of life – many of them losing their lives during that momentous summer of 1944 – the anniversary represents a momentous occasion celebrate peace, liberty, reconciliation and to hope for a peaceful future.

William Prideaux, the choir’s director says: “Peterborough Male Voice Choir has a long history in the city, going back to not long after first world war when so many local men made the ultimate sacrifice. Given our roots in the local community it seems fitting to mark the occasion with what promises to be a nostalgic evening of wonderful melodies and touching moments, while raising money for a really good cause, the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.”
