The Boys & Girls from All Hallows High School & Bernstorff-Gymnasium braved the elements for a friendly game to commemorate the 1914 football match played by the English & German soldiers.
The match was held at Bamber Bridge Football Ground and was organised by South Ribble Borough Council with the help of Baxi Co Ltd, The Royal British Legion & Armed Forces, Chorley Building Society, Leyland Round Table, Townsend Print, Stuart Clewlow and the Creative Network.
Thank you to Louisa Stirland for an amazing performance of Silent Night (watch out for this young lady, she’s gonna be big)
They had a team of song writers, artists, filmmakers, editors and many more to help produce an original and moving short film about Leylands story during the war. My job was to film the interviews which included Molly & Maggie, 2 sisters who are 100 & 104 years old!
I also filmed this short highlights clip of the evening which took place at St Andrews Church, a fantastic event for the town and from what i have heard, this isn’t the last of this sort of thing 🙂
