On Saturday 13th September 2014, Enter CIC performed at the DLI Reunion World War One Centenary Commemoration Weekend. It was quite simply a wonderful dliimage2and unique event. Many events were taking place across Durham City to commemorate World War 1. The Palace Green and Durham Cathedral were buzzing with excited visitors, veterans and current serving soldiers.

Enter CIC were at the event to perform our new musical entitled ‘Home Fires’ in the Exhibition Marquee on Palace Green, Durham. The exhibition marquee was opened by The Lord Lieutenant of County Durham, Mrs Sue Snowden. The visitors were entertained by Pittington Brass Band who played a selection of War time favorite Songs and Music. TV Presenter and Broadcaster Kate Adie (pictured below left with two of our students) talked about dliimage1her book ‘Fighting on the Home Front, The legacy of Women in World War One ‘.
Our students took to the stage (inside the Exhibition Marquee) at 3.00pm. The audience was filled with veterans and members of the military who are currently still serving. Our students performed with huge enthusiasm, emotion and passion. Some scenes brought audience members to tears and at the end of the performance our young people were joined on stage by veterans including a Chelsea pensioner.
A wonderful day and one that will be remembered for years to come. See below for a gallery of images.
 
 
“It was a huge privilege to have Enter CIC performing at the DLI Reunion & WW1 Commemoration Weekend in Durham. A huge thank you to you all. The weekend’s events looked to the past, but the energy, talent and emotion shown by the Enter CIC cast made us all think to the future. You all are ‘Stars'”
