Haig lecture features in WW1 London churches commemoration

                                                                                                                Monday September 10 2018


The latest in a series of events planned to commemorate the end of the First World War and recognise the contribution of Scottish organisations takes place in London on October 2.

Ten Scottish groups – including St Columba’s Church, Crown Court Church, the Royal Caledonian Education Trust and the charity Scotscare – have united to commemorate the centenary of the end of the war.

The Caledonian Lecture, focussing on Field Marshal Haig’s legacy, will be delivered by Professor Gary Sheffield at the Caledonian Club. Details of the reception, lecture and dinner are available from the Club.

Further events are planned during October and November, including a Royal Caledonian Education Trust Schools theatre production on October 18 and two performances of St Columba’s WWI Story - Feeding the 50,000 (featuring stars from Downton Abbey among the cast) on October 20, along with special Remembrance Sunday services on November 11 at both St Columba’s and Crown Court churches. Tickets for all performances are available from Eventbrite or by emailing events@stcolumbas.org.uk
