Lest We Forget

6 November 2017

Dancers and performers from across Tameside came together in honour of the Tameside Armed Services Community, to raise money and support the services community. 

Lest We Forget is an event that brings together the community to reflect and support. Organised by the Performing Arts Department and hosted in the Performing Arts Theatre, the event featured students studying Dance at Ashton Sixth Form College along with a whole host of performers and companies from across the Tameside Borough. All funds raised go towards supporting the work of TASC

TASC offer support and advice, organising events and reunions for Veterans and their families, creating a network for those who have fought for their country. TASC supports the services community in line with the Armed Forces Covenant,

The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the state and the Armed Forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the Armed Forces and their families and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.

With special thanks to the performers and chaperones from - Boundary Dance, Torque Youth Dance Company, Kirsten’s Dance Academy, 2faced Theatre Company, Next Geneneration Youth Theatre, Dawn Healy-wilde Sotd, Ashton Sixth Form College, Droylsden Academy.
