TALK: THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE

TALK: THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE Image

When can their glory fade?  O the wild charge they made! (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

One of the most controversial actions in the history of British Army will be analysed by local military historians, John Harvey and Ralph Moore-Morris.

For this exciting interactive event, the audience will view the ground plan of action, observe the decisions taken at the time and then act as the ‘jury’ in a simulated Court of Enquiry to decide ‘How did it happen?’ and Who was responsible? for this epic catastrophe.

(Dedicated to the memory of James Mackie, who inspired this event)
