We’ve just been engaged to work on this lovely project ‘Trench Brothers’ in Sussex for HMDT Music.
Trench Brothers brings the First World War to life for students through the experiences and personal stories of Indian Army, British West Indies Regiment and black British Soldiers. It commemorates their contributions using puppetry, music, artefacts and cross-curricular learning and culminates in performances of a new music theatre work by composers Julian Joseph and Richard Taylor and librettist Tertia Sefton-Green, enabling students to develop a creative, artistic response to the stories and immortalise the deeds of these forgotten soldiers.
We will be delivering free training in archives and research with volunteers in the area, alongside visits to Seaford Museum, The Keep and the Chattri. This will lead to an exhibition this summer at Newhaven Fort.
We’ll be sending out more information soon about how to get involved!
