In commemoration of the centenary of the end of the First World War, take a step back in time to the Western Front in 1918 by joining The King’s Own Calgary Regiment for “Tunes from the Trenches”. The evening will be reminiscent of a World War One concert party, with popular tunes of the period, played by the regimental band of the 50th Battalion Canadian Expeditionary Force, today’s Regimental Band of The King’s Own Calgary Regiment accompanied by Joni Delauier and the Home Front Singers, with a visitor from the Front Lines. Throughout the evening he will be recounting his first hand experiences of stalemate, victories, losses, and peace along the Western Front in 1918.

Join us prior to the concert party at 6:00pm for refreshments and socializing. Then take a walk through the King’s Own Calgary Regiment museum to see how the memory and legacy of the members of the 50th Battalion is currently preserved and sustained by the King’s Own Calgary Regiment.

Entrance is via donation, recommended amount per person is $10.
