Dear Film Club Chums, Just writing to let you know of a change of date for our November screening:
This critically acclaimed multimedia production features the songs, poems and stories of World War One as it follows the journey of young Scots soldier Jimmy McDonald through the trenches.
With a cast of 26 performers, including Scottish folk scene favourites such as Barbara Dickson, Siobhan Miller, Dick Gaughan, Ian McCalman, Professor Gary West, Stephen Quigg and Ian Bruce, the songs of the war are seamlessly linked by narrator Iain Anderson and accompanied by a range of projected images, bringing to life Scotland's contribution to the war effort both on the front line and at home.
Falling under Scotland's Armistice centenary commemorations, the Selkirk show was part of a ten-venue tour of the production being delivered by WW100 Scotland in partnership with Legion Scotland and Poppy Scotland. For more information about the tour and other venues and dates visit bit.ly/FarFarFromYpres.
The Victoria Hall performance was the first of the tour and was filmed professionally to promote the show. Selkirk Film Club will be screening the concert footage for the first time publicly as a fundraiser for Poppy Scotland on Saturday 17th November at The County Hotel (the perfect place for a pre-film meal and drink and a post-film drink and blether) doors open at 7.00pm and the film starts at 7.30. Entry on the door by donation to Poppy Scotland.
Hope to see you there.
