COMMEMORATING THE PEOPLE OF GOVAN AND THE FIRST WOLRD WAR
We are honoured that you have joined us for a very special afternoon,
commemorating the people of Govan and The First World War.
This is the second of two concerts, the first was on Glasgow’s Tall Ship, the Glenlee, on May 8th 2015. We commemorated the centenary of the sinking of the Clyde built RMS Lusitania. The RMS Lusitania was torpedoed on May 7th 1915 with the loss of 1,198 lives, hastening the US to enter the war on the side of the Allies
Glen Art has organised an exhibition on the Lusitania, which can be found on the Tween Deck of The Tall Ship, which is free of charge to visit. The Lusitania exhibition will run until June 19th 2015 and we would love you to come and visit and leave your comments.
We were delighted that so many members of the Govan Reminiscence Group and the Govan Fair Association were able to be with us that evening – and We would like to thank you all again for your partnership and collaboration.
This afternoon we commemorate the people of Govan and the First World War in words and music.
Thanks to an award from the Heritage Lottery Fund we are able to make this afternoon free of charge- but if you are able, we do invite you to make a donation towards the upkeep of this beautiful church. Please do stay and join us for refreshments and socialising at the end of the concert.
If you would like to know more about Glen Art, be informed of future events or support our work, we would be very pleased to hear from you, so do please get in touch.
