The free weekend will be officially opened by General Sir Roger Wheeler at 11am tomorrow as part of the commemorations planned by the Wylye Valley 1914 Project.

In the village hall there will be a number of attractions including a documentary showing the history of the British Expeditionary Force.

On Sunday at 3.30pm there will be a ‘Drumhead Service’ with the Royal British Legion standards, Salisbury City Band of the Royal British Legion and Warminster Military Wives choir.

The event runs on Saturday, 10am-5pm, and Sunday, 10am-4.30pm. See www.wylyevalley1914.org.uk
