Voices Of War          

World War one, also known as the Great War, was a distinctly modern conflict in many ways.  However, like wars throughout history, it inspired a tremendous amount of creative output from artists and writers, civilians and combatants, men and women.

Though we may read about dates and numbers when we study historic conflicts, the lived reality of World War 1 becomes much more vivid when we look at the diverse creative expressions it inspired.

Allen’s Cross Community Association has been looking at the Art, Poetry and Music produced during WW1 and its effect on the lives of ordinary people.  The project has been supported by National Lottery Players via the Heritage Lottery Fund

Photographs from the project can be seen here

Allen’s Cross ‘Growing Neighbourhoods project 

We had a great turn out at the official opening event on 15th August .  Thankfully the weather stayed fine for us.  The children loved the balloon modeller and the face painter and everyone enjoyed the pizza cooked on our brand new earth oven.  Our next event will be a harvest festival on Sunday 27th September.
