Created to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Great War, acclaimed musicians Chris Green and Sophie Matthews use music and song to tell the story of ‘The War to End All Wars’.
‘The Men Who Marched Away‘ is a scintillating mixture of soldiers’ songs, music hall numbers, war poems set to new music and original compositions. The show does not flinch from conveying the full horror of the first global conflict but also celebrates the courage and humour of the tommies under fire and those they left behind.
Featuring a host of wartime standards such as ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’, ‘Tipperary’ and ‘Goodbye-ee’ as well as brand-new musical settings of poems by lesser-known war poets such as May Wedderburn Cannan and C. Fox-Smith, ‘The Men Who Marched Away‘ is a moving tribute to the fallen and a fitting reminder of their sacrifice.
The concert lasts for one hour. GreenMatthews will then be available for a live Q&A for a further 30 minutes afterwards.
This event will take place LIVE in Zoom.

We are offering three ticket types for this event:
– Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
– Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
– Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason.
You can purchase whichever ticket you like; you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.
We are trialling this ticket system to help make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
