The National Youth Choir will sing at an international commemoration of the  First World War Battle of Amiens, to be held at Amiens Cathedral on Wednesday 8 August.

The event is one of many being held throughout 2018 to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. The Battle of Amiens, which began on 8 August 2018, is significant because it was the first action in the 'Hundred Days Offensive' campaign which eventually brought the war to a close on 11 November 1918.

The National Youth Choir will be singing at the official commemorative ceremony in Amiens on Wednesday 8 August, joining military and civilian representatives from the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Canada, Australia and the USA.

The ceremony is being broadcast live on BBC One, with coverage starting at 1.45pm UK time.
