The program will include poems written by UK War Poets Sigfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, and poems by Australian War Poets. The theme of the recital will be In Memory of those who have fallen in war, honouring also Indigenous Australians and New Guineans (Fuzzie Wuzzie Angels) and will remember how war affects everybody.
Following the recital there will be a special exhibition by Internationally renowned Adelaide Military Artist, Barry Spicer on display. Barry 's main focus is painting military subjects. His inspiration was initiated when at the age of 6, he saw the deadly aeroplanes in the movie "The Battle of Britain." His interest in drawing immediately changed to drawing aircraft and anything that flies. Today, his art work includes drawings and oil paintings and is of such a high standard he has won numerous commissions.
