oThe Little Victory Ball is offering you the opportunity to experience a whole evening in our world. Beginning with our performance which has been described as 'so intimate, I was holding back the tears' and 'Absolutely amazing performance, this is how everyone should learn history'.
The show ends with the haunting notes of the violin playing The Last Post which leads us to our three course authentic meal.
A rousing music hall singalong by local artiste Kitty Whizz Bang prepares the audience for our Victory Dance.

We will also feature a selection of carefully chosen artefacts which have been lent to us by a local historian. From a gas rattle to a dinner gong made from used shells to trench art jewellery and a 1916 mourning dress.
A raffle will be held with a variety of surprising items to be won and taken home as a memory of this most unusual evening.
