To mark the centenary of the end of World War One, Harrow Arts Centre has teamed up with partners including Headstone Manor & Museum, Harrow Libraries and the Cartoon Museum to create a unique season of commemorative events.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this programme offers the Harrow community opportunities to explore the history of the Great War with theatre such as The Unknown Soldier, for those aged 10 and above, on November 15.

This award-winning 35-minute piece of theatre looks at the First World War through the eyes of a man who has survived the devastation of the war but finds it hard to return home.

After the show, award-nominated writer and performer Ross Ericson will be holding a post-show discussion about the piece and its historical significance.

Other programme highlights include film screenings such as the classic 1969 British comedy musical Oh, What a Lovely war (PG) and the film adaption of Michael Morpugo’s inspirational novel, War Horse (12).

Both classic films are showing at Harrow Arts Centre on November 7.

For the whole month of November, there is also the opportunity to view Harrow artist Jonathan Hutchins’ celebrated paintings exploring the British Modernist poet David Jones’ epic war poem In Parenthesis.

Harrow Arts Centre are also looking for talented artists to create work exploring the role of Indian communities in World War One.

This Young Artist Competition is free to enter and the submission deadline is November 1.

All winning entries will be exhibited at Harrow Arts Centre with the overall winner receiving £300.

A host of family workshops are also planned for this remembrance season including a free We Will Remember drama workshop, for ages three and above, at Headstone Manor and Museum on October 25 and a Cartoon Creation Day at the Heath Robinson Museum on November 4 in which you can tour the quirky local museum and view humorous cartoons by World War One satirist Heath Robinson in a special pop-up exhibition.

Then in the afternoon, create your own cartoons with the help of Steve Marchant from the Cartoon Museum.

The season will culminate in a Community Takeover Day, marking 100 years since the end of the war on November 11 at Harrow Arts Centre.

This Remembrance Day will feature a large-scale poppy installation, historical re-enactment, workshops for the whole family such as Swing Dance, Mime, Make An Aeroplane, World War One Sing Songs and much more.

All activities and admission are free so join Harrow Arts Centre in marking this extraordinary milestone in British history – lest we should forget.
