World War I Poetry Recital Evening

Friday 11 July 2014

On 11th July the National Memorial Arboretum will host an evening of war poetry stories and music, where guests will have the opportunity to hear some of the Great War’s most famous poems, read in the atmospheric Millennium Chapel.

Hosted by poet Paul Thornber, this event promises to be a moving experience, looking at the cost of war from a number of different perspectives. Staffordshire Poet Laureate Tom Wyre will also be presenting a new work, a contemporary reflection on the sacrifices made 100 years ago.  This is a rare opportunity to see the National Memorial Arboretum after hours and to reflect on World War I in such beautiful surroundings.
