CHELTENHAM BOROUGH COUNCIL’s WW1 PROJECTION DIRECTLY ON TO THE MUNICIPAL OFFICES

On Sunday 11th November, as well as the annual Remembrance Service at the War Memorial on the Promenade,  Cheltenham Borough Council, in partnership with Everyman Theatre and Cheltenham BID, will mark 100 years since the signing of the World War One Armistice agreement, with a cinematic projection on to the Municipal Offices.

Sitting just behind the town’s War Memorial, the Municipal Offices will take centre stage and the whole building will be illuminated from the ground up in this magnificent spectacle.

A short film made by the Cheltenham based company Evenlode Films, will give the audience a high-impact audio and visual experience depicting aspects of World War One and the sacrifices made by men and women from Gloucestershire and across the country.

Measuring an impressive 50 metres, four times the size of an IMAX screen, the unique 15-minute film will be accompanied with a soundtrack amplified on full surround sound speakers and will give the audience a chance to reflect, remember and to be part of a unique performance.  You can view the trailer for this event here:  https://cheltenhamremembers.org.uk/cheltenham-remembers-world-war-1-a-unique-and-breath-taking-visual-experience

Cheltenham Borough Council would like to invite you to attend and experience this incredible public event, which is being shown every 30 minutes from 5pm-8pm. We would also like to invite you to share your thoughts on your experience and how similar events may benefit Cheltenham at a gathering of specially invited guests in the near future, the date of which will be confirmed.
Please let us know whether you will be attending the projection and would like to be involved in a future discussion on the opportunities it presents for Cheltenham by contacting Jane Stovell at jane.stovell@cheltenham.gov.uk or 01242 264367.
