Welcome to Community Games!

It's been a great summer for Community Games with more than 500 events taking place across the country.

But it's not too late to take part in the programme - with Remembrance Day approaching you could combine a Community Games with an event to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War One. The Last Post Project is giving communities the chance to remember the impact that the War had on their area and to play music from the era as a mark of commemoration. At all the events, the Last Post will be played in a variety of styles to remember someone in that community, not just on bugles but on any instrument from pianos and cellos to guitars and drums.

Between 4th and 18th November you could organise an event which combines both Community Games and The Last Post. Registering your Community Games will give you access to free resources to promote your event, and if you also register your event on The Last Post website you will receive a toolkit, a WW1 songbook, training sessions and cash expenses to cover event costs.

If you have held a Community Games, tell us how it went by the end of September to be in with a chance to win £500 for your community!
