Presenting Somme 100 film showing with music by The Endcliffe Orchestra on Friday, July 14th

In commemoration and remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Somme, The Royal British Legion is encouraging communities across the country to take part in this momentous occasion, encouragingĀ us to join hands in remembering one of the darkest days in the history of the British Army.

The Abbeydale Picture House is honoured to take part and play its part in remembering the bloodiest battle in British military history. In remembering the opening battle of the First World War, British composer Laura Rossi has written a score to accompany the 1916 filmĀ The Battle of the Somme.Ā 

Mixing the screening of the film with live music in the way The Abbeydale Picture House has become known for, the silent, 1916 film will be shown in conjunction with live music performed by Sheffield’s own Endcliffe Orchestra with Laura Rossi herself expected to be in attendance.

Having garnered positive reviews and reactions across their dozens of performances around the UK and the world, The Endcliffe Orchestra is delighted to be able to perform at such a momentous event which highlights an event in British history that should not be forgotten.

However, the only appearanceĀ by the Orchestra is in Sheffield wherein they will be performing at The Abbeydale Picture House on Friday, July 14th. With tickets costing as little as Ā£12 for adults and Ā£6 for under 16’s thisĀ is not an event to be missed. Witness the Battle of the Somme as it was originally intended, in an old fashioned picture house, on our gargantuan screen alongside a suitably epic score from The Endcliffe Orchestra.
