Preston commemorated Armistice Day through song.

Preston came together to celebrate Armistice Day in concert at the Gujarat Hindu Society.

The event, held on November 10th was hosted by the One Voice Community Choir, who performed for the local audience.

Organiser of the event, Stuart Mcphillips said: “the idea was to do something around the centenary of the very first Armistice Day.

So we got together as a choir and we thought we’ll involve as many members of the community as possible,” he added.

The concerts main emphasis was celebrating the peace treaty of 1918, as well as celebrating those who work for peace in the world today.

Choir conductor and lead singer, Tyndale Thomas MBE, said being a part of the event was a dream come true: “it’s something that I’ve always dreamt of, because peace is a wonderful thing. The world needs peace!”
