A SPECIAL concert to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War will be performed in Kidderminster.

Kidderminster Male Choir (KMC) will be hosting a show at the Town Hall in November to pay tribute to the heroes who took part in the battle.

But the show will start at 11pm on the night of Saturday, November 10 and run through until 12.30am on the following morning (Sunday, November 11), including a two-minute silence.

Kidderminster Male Choir spokesman Steve Conway said: “As this year is the 100 years anniversary of the ceasing of the hostilities we felt it only right to commemorate and honour the heroes, who fought and the many who made the ultimate sacrifice.

“Obviously there will be a number of commemorations over the weekend of November 10-11 and as many of the KMC choristers have past links with the military the choir felt it wanted to pay its own unique tribute.

“Therefore it was decided to hold a very special concert hence the unique starting time.

“The first half of the concert will comprise of a repertoire that reflects the occasion.

“At 11.59pm through to 12.01am there will be a two minute silence of remembrance.

“The second half will be dedicated to all those who fought for our freedom in all theatres of conflict.

“The choir will be joined by the brilliant four piece harmony group ‘Berkley Square’ who will bring their fabulous 1940's repertoire to the stage.

“There will also be readings, poetry and song from the time.

“This will be a fantastic evening dedicated to all our brave military who have fought and in many cases gave the ultimate sacrifice.”

He added that ticket availability and prices will be announced in due course.
