Battle of the Somme Film, accompanied by the Hastings Symphonia – Sunday 21 May 2017, 3:00pm

A performance of a new score accompanying a screening of the 1916 film ‘The Battle of the Somme’

Hastings Sinfonia is proud to be part of Somme100 FILM, an international project bringing together 100 live orchestral performances of the IWM film The Battle of the Somme to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle. The original restored 1916 film, by Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell, with our live performance of Laura Rossi’s new score, lasts approximately 74 minutes. It is not recommended for children under 12.

We are delighted that our performance will be introduced by two special guest speakers: Dr Toby Haggith from The Imperial War Museums, and the composer Laura Rossi.
