Tideswell Remembers, in a collaboration between Tideswell Churches Together and Tideswell Players, will commemorate this on Wednesday 17 December at 6pm in St John the Baptist churchyard.
The Christmas Truce, performed by Tideswell Community Players, re-enacts the time when German and British soldiers spontaneously laid down their arms and met each other to exchange Christmas greetings, token gifts and goodwill.
This is the final event of Tideswell Remembers, Tideswell's commemoration of the outbreak of World War 1. The short tribute will conclude with carols. Please come along and support the marking of this historic event.
