On Saturday 10th November, Strood Station hosted our first choir event of the weekend. Never Again by Kent composer Emily Peasgood was sung by Sea Folk Sing, 30 local singers who formed a community choir. They performed on the train platform and in the underpass to Station Road. The music was heard by over 200 passengers as they went about their Sat afternoon journeys. The event was to help commemorate the one hundreth anniversary of the end of World War One.
Composer Emily Peasgood says:
“Never Again is a thought-provoking piece. It transforms the audience to 100 years ago. It features tape recordings from the First World War to create an experience for visitors, while drawing parallels with the political climate today.”
