Journey's End performances raise £267 for Royal British Legion

Posted on 2 November 2011

As we approach Remembrance Day on the 11 November, the Belgrade Theatre and the show’s producers have donated 10p from every Journey’s End ticket sold to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, resulting in a final figure of £267.30.

Award-winning World War I drama Journey’s End was playing on the Belgrade’s Main Stage from Mon 24 to Sat 29 Oct. Based on the author’s own experience in the trenches, this gripping tale about ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances celebrates humour and courage, engaging audiences with a compelling insight of how the human spirit will always triumph in the face of adversity.

We visited some of France’s World War I memorial sites and trenches with Journey’s End director David Grindley. To find out more about the trip and to see some of the photographs click here.

The Royal British Legion is a charity that provides welfare to the whole Armed Forces family – serving, ex-service and their dependants. For more information or to find out how you can help click here.
