Commemoration Hall






HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM PATCH AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN 2019!

_________________________________________________________________________




The Commemoration Hall Huntingdon will be opening again in the new year and our Annual General Meeting - December 17 at 7.00pm.


Our long-term goal is to re-establish the Hall as a town centre performance venue, arts and community hub. While we work towards this, we aim to stay open and keep the Hall running.


Everyone is welcome to the AGM. We'll be electing Trustees to our board, and recruiting volunteers and fundraisers who are as passionate about this historic community venue as we are.


If you're interested in the future of the Hall, or helping support a thriving high street community, we'd love to see you.

About the production

On the 11th November 2018 our nation along with many others commemorates the outbreak of peace at the end of a long gruelling period of war. The war was fought under the most atrocious of conditions. Many young men from countries across Europe were killed. Today, when we look back at it, we scratch our heads in bewilderment.
​

Rev Andrew Milton had the idea of putting on a community piece of theatre to do a little bit to bring our town together. The result is Oh What a Lovely War, the iconic piece of British theatre by Joan Littlewood and her company.

Interwoven with many of the classic songs of the period the various scenes tell the story of a people and a nation sucked into conflict. The tale is presented with humour and pathos and comes together in a show that is both nostalgic and poignant in its comment on war.

Come and join us as we commemorate the men of Huntingdonshire who gave their lives in service of King and Country.

This amateur production of β€œOh What a Lovely War” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
