During the day and on the eve of October 16th 2021, 98 people will be immersed in the life of a Front Line Soldier in the trenches during the great war of 14-18. The aim of ‘Brothers in arms’ is to offer the participants a unique experience through VISUAL and SOUND EFFECTS, live and action acting, where actors take them to the trenches in Ypres’ hinterland. Be part of this unique experience!
For everyone between the ages of 15 and 99.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
