A large audience attended the demonstration held in the New Theatre, Tonbridge, on Sunday evening, 29 July 1923. There was singing led by a small orchestra and a united choir. The Rev. Evans presided as a member of the Tonbridge League of Nations Union branch, even though he reportedly did not approve of the word ‘demonstration.’
A Colonel O. E. D’Avigdor Goldsmid proposed the No More War resolution and said that he disagreed with Rev. Evans in his opposition to the word ‘demonstration.’ It was reported that the audience applauded when stated that ‘He liked the word because it roused public opinion, and he liked a demonstration of that kind because it revealed there was a number people about who realised the “horrors of war, and meant to do their best to prevent it”.’ The resolution was carried. During the interval a musical selection was played by the orchestra and a collection was taken, which, after expenses were met, was donated to the Save the Children Fund.
