The Trench Raiders Concert Party invites you to imagine you are in an estaminet in France or Belgium being typically entertained by a mixture of soldiers and local musicians.
We share how the "Tommies" made light of their precarious situation by producing parodies to well known songs - and the meanings of the lyrics contained within them.
Enthusiastic audience participation is guaranteed.
A Trench Raiders Concert explores what it was like to be there, the sections of the Armed Forces involved, outcomes in both battle and leisure times and how it impacted their sentiments and those of the "folks at home".
Getting The Party Going
Work with us to plan your event and the required venue ambience.
We bring a range of genuine artefacts, banners, posters and uniform.
