Enjoy a gala evening of music and reflection presented by the Royal Armouries to mark the centenary of the last 100 days of the First World War hostilities. Sir Karl Jenkins will conduct The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace performed by the Royal Choral Society and the Philharmonia Orchestra. He will also be joined on stage by British mezzo-soprano, Kathryn Rudge, who will perform a solo against a backdrop of Hefin Owen’s film of The Armed Man.

The event will also bring together Samuel Bordoli's The Great Silence, written in memory of choristers killed in the First World War, with the charity Remembered, featuring their 2018 Armistice installation There But Not There and a full supporting programme.

All proceeds from the event will go to three outstanding charities working to support military veterans facing mental health challenges: Help for Heroes, Combat Stress and Heads Together – The Royal Foundation's Campaign and Mental Health Initiative.
