Songs and Poems on YouTube

You can now watch all our project songs and poems on the Essex County Council YouTube account.

Have you had a listen to any of songs? Our project band included the very talented singer/songwriter Georgia Strand, guitarist Vo Fletcher and violinist Ric Sanders from Fairport Convention.

Here’s Poppies in the Rain.

And the wonderful Essex poet, Luke Wright can be seen performing his poems at Colchester Arts Centre. Here’s Bank Holiday, August 1914.

Showcase gallery

Have a look at some of the photos from the evening Showcase on 23rd March 2016, taken by my colleague Hannah Salisbury of the Essex Record Office.

We were hugely impressed by the range and quality of performers on the night, plus speeches from Essex County Council’s Cllr John Spence and Heritage Lottery Fund’s Karen Brookfield.

Thank you to all involved.

A film documenting the evening will be available on YouTube very soon. Watch this space…
