Bridging The Gap

Songwriting with WW1 veterans and St Mary’s School, Broadway to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WW1

Sponsored by Jenny Davis, Arts Uplift and Evesham Festival of Words, with Martin Riley and Jared Bryant

Deborah and Martin Riley will perform these songs with the children of St Mary’s School in Evesham on November 11 2018 to mark the Centenary of the Armistice.


“The concert this evening couldn’t have gone any better. Everyone sang and played so beautifully.

I would go so far as to say I believe there was some divine intervention at work. The 7 o’clock chime couldn’t have come at a better time, nor the visit from the butterfly yesterday during Martin’s beautiful reflective piece.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful few weeks. It has been an absolute pleasure to have met you and spent time watching you ‘at work’. You have mesmerised us all not only with your amazing voice but also your kind and wonderful spirit.”

Jenny Croke, teacher at St Mary’s School, Broadway
