During the First World War, troops were a constant feature of Winchelsea life. Due to the town's location on the south coast, many were en route to the channel ports for travel to France. They were billeted with families in Winchelsea and trenches were also built to defend the town. Although the town itself was unharmed during the conflict, many of its residents gave their lives fighting at the front. 

To mark the centenary of Armistice Day, a special programme of music related to the war will be performed, including an arrangement of Stravinsky's Soldier's Tale written in 1918. Arthur Bliss fought in the war, he was wounded at the Battle of the Somme and, two years later in 1918, he survived a gas attack at Cambrai. His bravery was commended in despatches. The Pastoral for clarinet and piano dates from this period. 

The repertoire will be performed by three outstanding musicians. internationally acclaimed, local resident, Ann Rachlin will narrate “The Soldier’s Tale” and guide the audience through the connections between the music and the conflict. The whole evening will be a most fitting tribute to all who died during this highly turbulent time.
