One of the highlights will be a ‘show-stopping’ unique sound and visual display projected on to the Landmark towers at around 7pm by CJH Associates and called Ilfracombe Remembers 1914 -1918.

Chris Horrell, the lighting expert behind it, said it is a real first and the biggest production he has ever done.

The World War One Celebrate and Commemorate event organised by Events4Ilfracombe will see a day of events around the Landmark, with stalls and exhibitions from noon to 5pm.

At 12.30pm there will be a recreation of the ‘Peace’ photograph taken in 1918, with people invited to gather on Capstone Hill to form the letters.

Ilfracombe Museum will be open to view its Faces of War and Living Letters Archive exhibitions from 1pm.

At 4pm, Lest We Forget will see a concert of words and music from the Great War performed by La La Voices and Small Pond Productions.

At 6.30pm there will be a tribute to the late Sue Garwood, who led the organising of the event, plus a tribute to the animals that died during the Great War and then the visual show.

The Soldier Wall from the 2014 event ‘1914 – 2014 Ilfracombe says Thank You’ has been recreated in the Landmark café and every soldier is accompanied by a hand knitted poppy donated by local people.

This exhibition will remain until the end of the month.

Organisers appealed for a few poppies to be knitted and needed about 170 for the soldiers. Hundreds, probably more than 1,000, have been knitted by many people and in addition to displays in The Landmark there will be a poppy cascade produced at Holy Trinity Church in time for the Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday.
