Sounding the Somme Project
Ellen Thomson and Laura Rossi led a Sounding the Somme teacher training session at Formby High school with teachers and a workshop with music students.
The music students created their own compositions which were recorded and screened before the concert and the art and history department put on a display of their Somme work at the live screening.
