Event Summary

n ‘A Painful Duty’ tells about day to day life in Sidmouth during WW1 and focusses on two real families and their losses. Events have been researched from the local newspapers of the time and we are naming all those lost at the end of each year with photos on screen, if we have them. There are also beautiful photos of Sidmouth from the Sidmouth museum and the featured families. An ensemble from the Sidmouth Town Band will play songs accompanying local singers, narrators read from the papers and actors tell the story of the 2 families in short, moving scenes. We hope the evening will be a fitting memorial to everyone who lived at the time and made such sacrifices whether at the front or at home. Proceeds to Royal British Legion and Sidmouth Town Band
