On the evening of Friday 1 July, the original film from the summer of 1916 of the Battle of the Somme will be shown. This is to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the battle. The film has been remastered with a soundtrack and provides an astonishing insight into the battle and how it was portrayed to the British public in the summer of 1916 when it was shown across the country and seen by millions.
The film starts at 7.30pm in All Saints’ Church Hall on The Causeway in Marlow and entrance is free of charge. The film will be followed by a short commemorative service at the war memorial outside.
