Battle of the Ancre Tour 2018

To mark the Armistice Centenary we will be touring Battle of the Ancre and Advance of the Tanks (IWM 1917 film). The sequel to Battle of the Somme, many consider it the better film: it’s cinematically superior, a more dynamic structure & narrative, visually stunning & innovative, and with an emotive, melodic score.

Below are the tour dates for the live orchestral screenings of the film with my music.
