Ipswich Choral Society will mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, in collaboration with creative groups from Ipswich, combining music, dance, poetry and animation to create an immersive, thought-provoking and moving performance on Saturday 17 March 2018 in the iconic Ipswich Town Hall. We will learn about the personal stories of Ipswich people, both at home and on the front lines, leading up to and during wartime.
Independent Dance Artist and Choreographer Mary Davies has been commissioned by Ipswich Choral Society to direct the dance performance and is calling out for community dancers and enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to take part in this unique opportunity.
