About the Event

Includes works by Vera Brittain, Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen,

Arnold Schoenberg, Elgar, Debussy, Ravel and Isaac Rosenberg

whose birthday it would have been today.

Baroness Williams says “I am pleased to hear from

the New London Synagogue, especially at a time when

co-operation and friendship between different faiths is

so important. My own background is Anglican, Catholic

and Jewish, my brother having married a very

distinguished member of the Sephardic sect.

The programme you outlined is compelling and I would

very much welcome taking part in this special evening,

and hope you would not mind me making a few remarks to say a little bit

about my own background in the two World Wars, with regard to my own

parents and family. I am both moved and honoured by your invitation, which I

very much appreciate.”

Minimum donation £12.50 members, £15 non members or

£20 on the door.
