WW1 Commemorative Event & The Magnificent AKsionals

Things have been lying low on the Magnificent front as the blokes take a well earned rest and are returned back to their family and friends before the Autumn/Winter season kicks off, but there is one very event that some of the blokes are involved with helping that will be of interest to you.

On 8 August there will be a Commemorative Concert in Cirencester Parish Church performed by MJ-UK Music & Arts & readings of winning entries from the WW1 poetry competitions. Supported by Heritage Lottery Fund & Friends of Cirencester Parish Church, 7.30 pm.  See for more information or

This event is something we would recommend you to attend the show and also grasp the opportunity to see a few of us actually participate under the "nom de chante" of The Magnificent AKsionals . . . !

By dint of having some contacts with the remarkable MJ-UK crowd we have been approached  with possibility of helping to perform some pieces and we will be coached by the amazing Maria Jagusz, musical director from MJ-UK.

The pieces we are planning to perform are

Only Remembered - War Horse  see YouTube link and
The band played waltzing matilda see YouTube Link

If you are interested in participating, contact pronto for info on rehearsal times.

We hope to see you at what should be a memorable evening.
