We're Here Because We're Here August 01, 2016 00:00

 

You may remember earlier this year, groups of World War One soldiers appearing in silent groups in stations and city centres around the country. 

This impactful and moving occurrence was a project created by Jeremy Deller and 1418 Now to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. 

I worked as Costume Supervisor for the North West Element of the project, wth the lovely team from the Royal Exchange in Manchester. 

The project was enormously challenging but also massively rewarding and unusual. The entire project had to be kept secret before the event in July so I'm very happy to be able to shout about it now!
