The orchestra, conducted by Robert Tait, started rehearsals for the Somme 100 event on Monday at Falkirk Trinity Church ahead of the performance on October 7 at Falkirk Town Hall.

It will consists of a screening of a 1916 documentary film about the battle accompanied by new music written by Scottish composer Laura Rossi.
