Journey Through Conflict

As Heard on BBC Radio 2

A performance, where Major General Andy Salmon shares his experiences over 19 years of the Iraq conflict, through a unique fusion of story, original art and live music.

". . . extraordinarily special live music . . . an elegy to loss but pointing towards a horizon of peacefulness . . .”

Join us at our next Event

"I found Andy's talk moving, thought-provoking and inspirational. I thought that the combination of story, pictures and live music (including the Call to Prayer) were extremely effective . . ."

I really enjoyed Journey Through Conflict yesterday – it was professional but human, absorbing, thoughtful and moving in a way I really hadn’t expected.

Tom Donald was incredible… Isaac and Ivan loved it!

Loved the idea of weaving in piano improv.  Gave us a gap for our own thoughts to form.

 I just want to say how much I enjoyed the parts of this festival which I attended, especially Journey Through Conflict!!
