ReStage, Curated by Chris Green and the University of York’s vocal ensemble The 24, directed by Robert Hollingworth, present a special event to mark a hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War.

August 1914, thousands sign up for the eagerly awaited war. Among them 55 men who were never to return from the parish of St Margaret’s Church,, Walmgate, York, now the National Centre for Early Music. But what inspired them, what did they think they were fighting for? What did they believe they were fighting against? This centenary tribute uses words, music, images and live action to explore the patriotic and nationalist origins of the War on both sides and differing notions of order and chaos. Presented in association with the 2014 University of York Festival of Ideas.

Adults £10.00 | Concessions £8.00 | Students £3.00 available from NCEM Box Office.
