We'll be throwing a spotlight on the heroism of Cornishmen who served on the Western Front in World War One. Joining us will be their descendants and members of Camborne Youth Band.
PLAYING FOR CAMBORNE: MUSIC AND RUGBY IN WORLD WAR ONE AND NOW tells the previously untold stories of local miners who joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1914.
It also tells the story of Camborne Youth Band's trip to the Western Front in 2018, marking the end of the war. The great great grandson of one of the miners is in the Band and played his 100-year-old bugle brought back from the Front. Click here to listen to interviews with the Youth Band musicians.
These brave miners weren’t in the history books before: they are now. We’ve gathered together research about their heroism in a book that we’ll launch that night.
We'll also show a film about the trip, showcasing the brilliant playing of the Youth Band. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07772 128 014 for more information.
