44th Churchill Memorial Concert Date to be Announced Soon

The Churchill Memorial Concert is a biannual event and the next Concert to be held will be in early 2017. Date and further details to be confirmed. The purpose of the Concerts are to celebrate the life and achievements of Sir Winston Churchill and to benefit local and national charities.

Check the Concert Website for Information & Ticket Options

The Churchill Memorial Concerts Trust was established in 1993 to expand the range of distribution of the proceeds of the Churchill Memorial Concerts. These concerts were conceived as a means of providing funds for the Music Therapy Charity and continued to do so exclusively until 1993. It was then decided to bring other charities into the net whilst continuing to support Music Therapy Charity, the policy of the Trustees being that the charitable purposes should be primarily (though not exclusively) for Oxfordshire and be of the smaller variety, for which local funding is a crucial element.

‘Sinews of Peace’: The Power of Prose When: On Now and Runs Until Further Notice

Location: The National Churchill Museum, Fulton, Missouri

churchill-in-fultonThis exhibition focuses on Winston Churchill’s mastery of language and how the words in his “Sinews of Peace” speech changed the course of history. Widely known as the ‘Iron Curtain’ speech, Churchill’s address on March 5, 1946 at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri warned the world of the looming threat of the Soviet Union in Europe.

The National Churchill Museum will display a typewritten draft of the speech with handwritten corrections dictated by Churchill to his secretary Edith Nina “Jo” Sturdee. All fifty pages of the speech will be displayed allowing viewers to experience first-hand Churchill’s final edits to his most famous post-war speech. The exhibition also includes photographs, rare audio and video clips, and never-before-exhibited documents, including correspondence between President Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, and Westminster College President Franc McCluer.
