There are still just a few tickets left for the Warwick Armistice Afternoon Tea on the final day of the Warwick Words History Festival – Sunday October 7th.
Staring at 2pm in the beautiful Regency ballroom in the Jury Street Court House, the event staged by Unlocking Warwick will mark the centenary of the end of the fighting in WWI with presentations about how the town was affected by The Great War, and personal stories about some of those who left Warwick for the Western Front and the Middle East, never to return.
There will be some poetry and music performed by Imogen Parker and Oliver Hancock, and a chance to join in with some of the popular songs from the period.
The afternoon tea will be fairly authentic – the kind of tea that would have been served here to celebrate the end of the conflict in 1918.
So if you would like to hear about Warwick in the First World War 100 years on, don’t leave it too late. Tickets cost £16 and are available at the Visitor Information Centre in the Court House, or from the Warwick Words Box Office: 01926 334418. www.warwickwords.co.uk
