Remembrance at the Trenches

About Remembrance at the Trenches

Please join us at the reconstructed trenches for remembrance day.

1.00 pm & 3.00 pm: Words of WWI

Film screening featuring 10 powerful poems. The film-makers will be on hand to explain how they turned each poem into a gripping visual piece that matches intensive imagery to the rhythm of the words.

2.00 pm: ‘Time, Gentlemen, Please’ – Armistice Tales from the Trenches

Programme

Dr Simon Walker of the University of Strathclyde walks us through the trenches as we explore how soldiers responded to news of the Armistice – from disbelief and detachment to shock and jubilation.

All Day: Ask a WWI Soldier

Living history experts occupy the trenches and answer your questions about life as a soldier serving in the First World War.

All Day: Make a Poppy

Make a poppy (of any colour) to commemorate those who were affected by WWI.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Remembrance at the Trenches are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
