All the remembrance services and events taking place in Bristol

Richard Morrison: The end of the First World War was the beginning for British composers

The 2018 Remembrance Day coin design features a poppy, a symbol which is synonymous with remembrance and the traditions that surround it

People caught up in a momentous event dont always realise its historical significance at the time. Not so the 1918 armistice. Ive just read every edition of The Times for the week beginning November 11, 1918. The overwhelming feeling its articles convey is of people hugely aware of their responsibility to create a happier world.

Among those articles are substantial essays by the papers music and theatre critics on the directions their art forms might take in peace time. They are fascinating, because so many of their points strike a chord today.
