We Wish you a Merry Christmas at Carols in the Trenches
One of the most uplifting and poignant WW1 events in the country takes place at the Staffordshire Regiment Museum on Saturday 12th December. Carols in the Trenches is a yearly commemoration of the 1914 Christmas Truce, which saw fighting men leave their trenches to share songs, stories and family photographs. In the evocative surroundings of the Museum’s large and complex WW1 trench system, a choir leads the audience through carols popular in 1914, and uniformed members of the Museum’s Education Team read original letters and first-hand accounts of the 1914 Christmas Truce. Danielle Pritchard, Curator of the Staffordshire Regiment Museum commented: “It is always a night to remember, last year visitors sang ‘Silent Night’ and ‘It Came upon the Midnight Clear’, but perhaps one of the most evocative moments was when the audience was leaving the trench, and they and the choir broke into a spontaneous rendition of ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’ and ‘Pack up your Troubles’.” The evening concludes with a re-enactment of the truce, as German, British and Allied soldiers meet in No-Man’s-Land to shake hands. Carols in the Trenches tickets sell out quickly, so visitors are advised to book their tickets well in advance.
