The Town of Llanelli will hold a major civic performance to pay tribute to the Centenary of World War One.
THE TOWN REMEMBERS will see dignitaries, armed forces and civilian personnel from across the community unite with the public in the beautiful surroundings of St. Elli Parish Church to re-tell the story and sacrifice of the great war through song, music, narration and multimedia.
With the venue illuminated with candlelight and lighting effects, the commemorative spectacle will feature the massed voices of the Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers, the Llanelli Choral Society, leading Welsh tenor Aled Hall, drummers from the British Sinfonietta – all under the direction of conductor John Hywel Williams.
A host of celebrities and representatives from the community will present poignant readings including Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed The Hon. Robin Lewis OBE, Member of Parliament Nia Griffiths MP and The Town Mayor of Llanelli, Councillor Roger T. Price.
