The Last Post
The Last Post is a First World War centenary project bringing communities across the UK together to play the Last Post on a variety of different instruments at commemorative musical events.
Running in its first year from 4th to 18th November 2014, over 250 communities hosted events that saw the Last Post played on guitars, pianos, harmonicas and more.
The project returned in April 2015 to commemorate the Anniversary of Gallipoli from the 20th – 26th April 2015.
Community groups and schools who took part were able to access:
- Funding towards expenses for commemorative events
- Special families and young people resource pack containing archive materials and activities
- Music, lyrics and backing tracks for British and Worldwide songs from 1915
- Support from Superact’s network of Regional Managers
