The Full Story


In 2014, a large scale arts project took place on Salford Quays. 

This event brought together hundreds of people in a multimedia event to commemorate 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. 

The event featured stunning projections onto a 100 metre screen, dance and theatre, and a specially created super-choir of almost 300 singers from across the north west - all combining to create a powerful spectacle evoking the chaos of war and the devastation in wreaked. 

It was an experience which will undoubtedly live long in the memory of anyone who took part and 6 thousand in the audience that joined us back in August 2014.

Following on from this event, Honour Choir was created to continue singing together and mark anniversaries throughout the commemoration period. It was re-launched as an independant choir, with permission from Quays Culture who organised the original event, under the musical direction of Jeff Borradaile.  


Honour Choir performed throughout the commemoration period and, true to the original event, added in spoken word to enhance the music and provide stories of those affected by the war. 

The spoken work pieces, created by award winning slam poet Christopher Bowles, showcased soldiers on the front as well as their friends and loved ones left behind.
