2018 will be a big year for many hundreds of thousands of people remembering the end of the Great War, in Brighton. As Patcham's War Memorial Hall, we are celebrating the end of the battle that was supposed to "end all wars" by showing how a community that works together on a positive project can make a difference. The weekend of 10th & 11th November 2018 will be the pinnacle, we hope, of our successful refurbishment project.
Saturday 10th November, our regular group Dansez Français will put on an evening of 'Entente Cordiale' with visiting French musician and singer Bernard Loffet. You can come and listen, and you can join in the dancing, mainly simple Breton circle dances, communal bourrées, and French waltzes. Sunday 11th in the afternoon we're planning a Swing tea dance, then a High Tea and Peace poetry session. finishing the day with the 1967 film "Oh what a Lovely War", which was filmed in Brighton ... and we'll be seeking you to "Sponsor Peace" by helping us plant beautiful Peace rose bushes in our front garden. Our programme is being created now, and we'll confirm all the events and times as soon as we can.
