We’re Here Because We’re Here – A silent commemoration of the soldiers of the Somme

Thousands of soldiers dressed in First World War uniforms appeared in towns and cities across the UK today as part of a live public memorial on an unprecedented scale. The project, marking the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, was conceived by artist Jeremy Deller and the National Theatre’s Rufus Norris – the latest commission from 14-18 Now.
