Music & stories for a past century is an informal concert marking the centenary of the end of World War I. The aim is to make a connection with the people who lived and worked in the streets of Camberwell and South London a hundred years ago. We hope to look at Camberwell life before the war and how it changed – through historical accounts, stories and music.
All are very welcome to attend. Doors open at 6pm and music starts at 6.30pm. Entry is free but seats are limited, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment. Donations gratefully accepted.
St Giles’ will be marking Remembrance Sunday and the centenary of the end of World War I on 11th of November with a performance of Fauré’s Requiem at 6.30pm.

We are inviting capable singers to help perform the Requiem – if you would like to be involved, please contact email@example.com
Rehearsals will take place from lunchtime on the day and there will be optional rehearsals during the weekend before.
Tickets, posters and further information will be available shortly.
