All Saints is the Parish Church of Bingley, a beautiful market town in West Yorkshire. It is an ancient church which has served the congregation and people of Bingley for over a thousand years. We continue in prayer and worship, in the breaking of bread, in baptisms, confirmations, marriages and funerals. MORE...
A Celebration of the end of the First World War at All Saints Church - Armistice Day 2018.
Nigel Schofield’ Company brought us ‘Over by Christmas’ in 2014 an amazing production to mark the start of the
First World War. Now it’s time to mark the end of that dreadful conflict.
In Nigel’s own words ...
‘Scheduled for a short series of performances to coincide with the centenary of the First World War Armistice, TO
END ALL WARS is the latest production by the Follow the Fleece Company. It has a cast of twenty-four and, like
previous productions, it is written and directed by Nigel Schofield with Helen Hockenhull as musical director.
Taking the end of the First World War (“the war to end all wars”) as its starting point, it follows mankind’s fruitless
pleas for peace from the Trojan War to the present day, using existing and original songs, contemporary writing,
poetry and the company’s unique approach to dramatic staging to tell the tale.
The music ranges from ancient ballads (including one collected in Bingley in 1611), popular song, rock, folk and
original material especially written for this production. By turns, grimly amusing and tragically moving, it’s a show
which puts audiences in the firing line of pacificism, and the truth behind the heroic aftermyth.’
We are very fortunate in Bingley as the team have agreed to perform this on Sunday 11 th November
(Remembrance Sunday). A very poignant date.
This company have brought us so many excellent productions over the years and this is sure to be another first
class evening’s entertainment. Come and fill the church in remembrance.
