DOORS OPEN: 6.45pm reception with complimentary programme and glass of “Bubbly” PERFORMANCE STARTS: 7.30pm

Commemorating the end of WW1, the evening will offer a moving reminder of the many young and talented lives that were lost in the Great War.

Delivered by the internationally acclaimed performers and writers: Simon Over (pianist), Mathew Sandy (tenor) and Kate Kennedy (biographer and narrator), the Fateful Voyage tells the moving story of the friendship between Rupert Brooke the famous war poet and his talented friends, FS Kelly and William Denis Browne all of whom died in the Great War.

The programme weaves together letters, diaries and poetry generated by their friendship to create a performance that includes their forgotten songs and previously unknown piano music.

The fateful Voyage work was originally commissioned by the City of London Festival in 2014, and premiered on Radio 3 as part of the commemoration of the First World War. 

Simon Over will start the evening by playing the first movement of Elgar’s Organ Sonata, written in 1895 when Brooke, Kelly and Brown were boys.
