Bromley’s award-winning a cappella singers Just Voices are hosting a choral vigil by candlelight to commemorate the outbreak of the First World War.

Held on Monday August 4, when war was declared, the evening looks to be a touching way to reflect on one of the saddest days in history. 

The group joins many others across the country in remembering those who fought, as well as other events throughout the borough.

Collectively, '14-18 Now', the official cultural programme for the First World War centenary, is hoping to inspire everyone to turn the lights out between 10-11pm on the date.

Described as "one of the most dramatic UK-wide events ever organised", everyone in the country is asked to switch off and leave just a single candle on to share a "moment of reflection".

Just Voices will be at the Baptist Church Hall, Gravel Road, Bromley Common, from 8.45pm, with music, readings, and refreshments, as well as a collection for the Royal British Legion.
