3.30pm Christmas by Candlelight: A service in the trenches, led by University of Glasgow chaplain Reverend Stuart MacQuarrie, with singing by Brianna Robertson-Kirkland.

All day activities: Make a Christmas decoration, a pocket teddy bear or taste some holiday treats at War & Peas, our Home Front allotment.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Know Your Enemy: Truces & Fraternisation in WW1 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
