The revue was a sell-out success all three nights. The Lenches' WW1 Commemoration group has told us that it raised approximately £1000 for forces charities, exceeding their expectations by a good margin.
Before and after the show, and during the break, the performers, of which there were around 40, mingled among the audience. Then during the show the performers took over 3 different stages in a unique setup never before tried at the village hall. It worked brilliantly.
Those performing included many of the regulars from GLADS (Greater Lenches Amateur Dramatic Society) productions plus many more who came out for the first time to help commemorate the experiences and sacrifices of our forebears in the period leading up to WW1 and then into the first few months of the war.
In addition to the revue, there was also a small exhibition of weaponry (provided by Pete Davenport, renowned local collector of such items) along with mementos, objects and stories provided by local people, demonstrating and relating how the war affected their lives and families in often moving and profound ways.
