Auditions will be held for ‘For King And Country’, which take place on Monday, 27th April, from 7-10pm at Ascot Durning Library Community Room, High Street, Ascot SL5 7JF.
Community members of all ages are asked to step forwards for just eight Monday night rehearsals before an unforgettable set of performances at Ascot Racecourse on Friday 3rd July.
‘For King And Country’ – a Heritage Lottery Funded event- will use stories of real local soldiers who went off to fight in the Great War. In a unique piece of theatre, using music, dance, drama and more, actors from the community will recreate the sights, sounds and smells of the Home Front the soldiers of WWI left behind - and the trenches where some spent their last days.
Scene Productions directors, Kelly Taylor Smith and Katharine Hurst, have rich experience of recreating WWI theatre to dazzle audiences. In Summer 2014 they and a community theatre company performed to sell-out audiences at South Hill Park, Bracknell with ‘Oh What A Lovely War’.
The event is part of a wider WWI project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by Windsor and Maidenhead Borough Council and Windsor & Royal Borough Musuem. The ‘For King And Country’ Project is recording all the names on the 200 war memorials in the Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead – and the stories behind as many as possible. It is time-limited and runs until February 2016.

ASCOT RACECOURSE READY TO WELCOME EPIC FUNDRAISING VENTURE ‘WALKING THE COURSES’ | On Wednesday 29th April, fundraiser and 53-year-old father of four, Richard Farquhar, will arrive at Ascot Racecourse, having walked the 62 miles from Towcester Racecourse in Northamptonshire, on the latest stage of his epic fundraising venture, Walking The Courses.
Farquhar is aiming to raise £1.4million for Racing Welfare and Pancreatic Cancer UK by connecting all sixty racecourses in mainland Britain on foot in an unbroken chain, in doing so covering around 2,750 miles. To complete his Towcester to Ascot leg of the journey in style, Farquhar will be walking around the Ascot course itself at 12:30, accompanied by many familiar faces within racing including trainers, jockeys and the Ascot Racecourse Trustees.
It is early days for Walking The Courses, with Ascot Racecourse being just the seventh racecourse in the country to host the charity campaign. By April 2016, upon arrival back at Newmarket, having completed all 58 racecourse-to-racecourse walks, Farquhar hopes to have hit his ambitious target of £1.4million, to have involved people from all across the UK in his challenge - including notable individuals within the horse racing industry - and partnered with some of the biggest businesses within the racing industry. Thus far, Walking The Courses has featured on Channel 4 Racing, Sky’s At The Races, Racing UK and BBC World’s Service’s coverage of the Grand National, which was won by Walking The Courses’ Official Equine Ambassador, Many Clouds.
