’Christmas 1914’ Flower Festival and Exhibition in Christ Church Bray

By Lynn Glanville

Christ Church Bray Remembrance

To mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One, Christ
Church Bray is holding a ‘Christmas 1914′ Remembrance Flower Festival
and Exhibition. The event will run from Friday November 7 to Tuesday November 11 from
10.00 am to 4.00 pm daily.

With
the names of the 168 boys and men from Bray who died during WW1
remembered in a very poignant way, the Exhibition also tells the
remarkable true story of how a German soldier singing ‘Silent Night’
across the trenches on Christmas Eve brought a strange peace and even a
football match into a situation of absolute horror.

There
will be a ‘Christmas 1914′ concert on Friday evening, November 7,
at 8.00 pm with Bray Concert Band. This concert will include story
telling, poems and music of the time in the extraordinary setting of
floral and historic exhibits.

Admission is €10 per adult, children are free.
