Burton in Lonsdale in North Yorkshire, is planning a series of events to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice this November.
One of these is a community concert, loosely structured around how people in different theatres/places heard about the Armistice.
Mike Biles from the village said: “We know that an impromptu celebration was held in our village hall - where our concert will be - on the very day of the Armistice.
“We have a newspaper cutting about this. What we don’t know is how the villagers got the news so quickly.
“We believe there was a telegraph system between the post office in Lancaster and in the village.“
