Over by Christmas

Northwich Railway Station
Saturday 20 September
10.30am - Free

During September, Theatre in the Quarter will embark on a journey around the railway stations of Cheshire to present Over by Christmas, a choral commemoration of the departure of Cheshire’s soldiers to the Western Front in Autumn 2014.

Featuring well-loved songs of the period, Over by Christmas captures the spirit of optimism and patriotism of those leaving their loved ones, perhaps never to see them again.

A community choir of ‘soldiers’, ‘nurses’ and their families will recreate this poignant and historic moment, accompanied by live musicians.

Watch a trailer here.

A Call to Arms by Alan Lowe tells the story of the first 6 months of WW1, as told through the local Northwich newspapers - details of the book here.
