UK Christmas Truce

Tour Introduction

Take your school to the Front Line without taking them abroad. This year your students can experience Anglia’s Christmas Truce tour without having to leave the UK. We have adapted our UNIQUE fully-guided programme so you can still witness that singular moment when, albeit for a brief period, fighting along parts of the Western Front actually ceased, and still be back home by Christmas.

This tour combines:

  • Meet our Recruiting Sergeant keen to persuade your ‘men’ to sign-up for the British Expeditionary Force
  • Spend time with our Drill Sergeant learning Drill & weapons handling
  • Listen to our Medical Officer explain how battlefield wounds, injuries and illnesses are treated
  • Witness a re-enactment of the Truce itself played out by our team of actors each in the persona of a man who was in the Ypres Salient over Christmas 1914

It is a truly moving experience
