In 2014, Global Fusion Music & Arts, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England  and Charlton Triangle Homes and supported by: Charlton House, Firepower Museum, the Greenwich Heritage Centre and Greenwich Heritage Trust, put together a programme to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.


GFMA put together a photographic exhibition ‘Then and Now’ in Charlton House during November, which was then extended for three months and then moved to the Greenwich Heritage Centre. The Exhibition focused on photographs from the WW1 period from around the Greenwich borough and with images taken from the same location and angle 100 years later.


Working with four schools and six classes GFMA workshop leaders led the children in drama based on WW1 and songs from the World War One period. The children performed these dramas and songs on Armistice Day Tuesday 11th November 2014 in Charlton House.
