Poetry from the trenches will be read at An Evening of Remembrance in Spalding next week.

Holbeach Town Band and Ayscoughfee School in Spalding are joining forces for the concert at South Holland Centre on Friday, November 11 (7.30pm).

Alongside war-time songs, there will be readings of poetry and letters sent home by soldiers at the front.

Tickets are £13.50/£12 and the revenue will be donated to the RBL Poppy Appeal.

There is an Act of Remembrance at Holbeach Cemetery on Sunday (3pm) as part of a Reminiscence Day (10am-4pm) at Holbeach Reading Rooms when Holbeach Cemetery Research Group members hope to record people’s memories.
