Commemoration for the start of WW1
As part of the Mayor of Chelmsford’s charity fund raising this year in support of the Royal British Legion, a bucket collection will be taken at the end of the film, which is being shown to mark the centenary of the Great War.
You may like to note that the Workers’ Education Association will also be screening the film at the Cramphorn on November 11th.
