Builth Wells is set to host a Remembrance Concert to mark 80 years since the start of World War Two.

The town’s branch of the Royal British Legion is urging the community to show their support and attend the annual event which will also commemorate D-Day.

“We would like as many of you as possible to attend the concert and remember the sacrifice our brave servicemen and women made for us,” said a spokesperson.

“So come and support this year’s concert and let’s make it bigger and better than ever.”

Builth Wells Ladies Choir, local schools and organisations are all set to take part in the “wonderful and successful” community event at the Strand Hall.

“Hopefully there will be some surprise performances and also some World War Two songs for you to join in”.

Children from primary schools in the Builth Wells area have designed posters advertising the Remembrance Concert.

A spokesperson added: “It was a very difficult task to choose the winning three as all the many pictures were of such a high quality so thank you once again to all the children who took part.”

Organisers are hoping to emulate the success of last year’s event commemorating the centenary of the Armistice which was an amazing success."

Concert tickets at £5 each are now available from Hawthorns on the High Street and at the Strand Hall Poppy Shop from Saturday, October 26.

Builth Wells Remembrance Concert will be held at the Strand Hall on Friday, November 8, at 7pm.
