'Up The Line' Event confirmed' for 11th November

The FOBLC is delighted to have received confirmation from the organisers that following on from the hugely successful 2009 event there will be a bigger and more beautiful evening performance of ‘Up The Line’ in Brockley and Ladywell Cemetery, two weeks tonight, 11.11.10 from 7pm

Poets, musicians, dancers, soundscape and film will begin their performance at the sound of a single Scottish piper along a one and half kilometre path running through the cemetery with the children’s lantern procession beginning at 7.30pm.

Monuments to those who were injured during the conflict and subsequently passed away in Lewisham Hospital and those killed in Deptford by the Zeppelin attacks will be lit by light artist Tom White using hydrogen fuel cells, dispensing with the need for diesel generators and reducing our CO2 emissions by 70% on 2009.

We do hope you can make it along to this free unique event with entry anytime from 7pm until 8.20pm. The wheelchair and pram accessible path will take between 55-70 minutes to walk so please dress appropriately, wear sturdy shoes and bring a torch.
