Park Drive,


The evening commemoration event will be filled with video, sound, and light, and provide an opportunity to poignantly reflect on what the Great War means to us all.
Please note the evening will contain disturbing images from the First World War as well as some loud noises that some people may find distressing or upsetting.
By kind permission of the Imperial War Museum, we will be showing excerpts from the original 1916 film ‘The Battle of the Somme’ which has been digitally remastered. This, together with music, readings and the participation of local cadet forces, set against the back drop of the River Blackwater, will provide a memorable and fitting tribute.
At 7pm, Cllr Henry Bass, Chairman of Maldon District Council, will initiate a tribute called Beacons of Light, which will see the beacon lit to signify the light of peace that emerged from the darkness of four years of war. This beacon will be one of over 1,000 beacons being lit across the United Kingdom at the same time.
