The Battle of the Somme Centenary Tour
The Somme100FILM project marked the centenary of the Somme battle by organising 100 international screenings of the original 1916 film with Laura Rossi's score. It was performed live by amateur, youth & professional orchestras from July 2016 - 2017
On this website you'll find information about the Somme100FILM project and the Sounding The Somme education project. You can also browse the performance archive where you can watch, read & listen to experiences from performers, organisers, audience members and the Somme100FILM team. If you we're involved, we'd love to share your experiences too - contact us here.
Live screenings are planned for future dates, and the film, orchestral score and eduaction resources are available for future events. See here for details
“And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective”
