15 June 2014 – 10am to 6pm
The centenary of the beginning of Word War 1 was commemorated with a day of artistic performances and events at Kendrew Barracks.
Gravity and Levity are a spectacular aerial dance company who performed their new show, Rites of War – a sixty minute, narrative led, aerial dance theatre performance combining a commissioned score with film, animation and current news commentary. The story reflects two soldiers, one from WW1 and one from Afghanistan.
ON the main stage throughout the day there were performances from Rutland Sinfonia, Rutland Concert Band, Marching Cadet Band, Drill Display and Massed Choral Finale with students from primary schools across Rutland.
Throughout the day across all of the tents there was lots to see with appearances from many local groups including theatre, art, music, the WI, the British Legion, choirs and much more!
