Le Quesnoy liberation celebrations get under way in Cambridge

The 100th anniversary of the liberation of Le Quesnoy in World War I was marked in Cambridge with a special remembrance of light, song, sounds, art and celebration.

It saw Cambridge Town Hall's front transformed into a temporary movie screen as a giant projector showed a 3½-minute long movie using footage of WWI.

The text from a book written by Massey University war studies professor Glyn Harper on Le Quesnoy's liberation and was narrated by a 13-year-old French girl.

The 100th anniversary of the liberation of Le Quesnoy was marked in Cambridge with the town hall turned into a projector screen.

"It's the story of Le Quesnoy told from a young girl's perspective so her voice will play and we'll have scenes playing on the wall that are relevant to the text at the time," Armistice Cambridge committee chairman Paul Watkins said.

It will run every night until the weekend.
