My wife and I were privileged to attend "From Darkness to Light". We would like to congratulate all those concerned in staging what was a very moving and thought-provoking occasion. Readings were aptly chosen and well delivered and music performed to a high level. Above all it was entirely appropriate that surviving members of the DLI, there when the camp was liberated, should be part of the parade. Moving also were the lines of children, each carrying shoes and the pile of footwear assembled at the font symbolising the victims.
Truly it inspired us to believe that such evils should never be forgotten and that every effort be made to ensure that the like never happens again.
This superb event took place on 6th July, 2013.
"The best value Opera night out in the north east"
A gloriously indulgent night out in sumptuous surroundings.
Alistair Dawes conducted a superb-fund raising event with Penny Randall-Davies, Heather Jil Burn, Austin Gunn and Roderick Earle, accompanied by The Felling Band (north of England champions 2012) and local choirs.
