Jeremy Irons Participates in Pages of the Sea

Jeremy Irons invites you to join Danny Boyle and thousands of people on 11 November to mark one hundred years since Armistice and the end of the First World War. Gather on beaches across the UK & Ireland to say a personal thank you & goodbye as part of Pages of the Sea. Who will you say goodbye to?



11 November 2018 marks 100 years since Armistice and the end of the First World War. To mark the occasion we’re working in partnership with 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary on ‘Pages of the Sea’.

Today filmmaker Danny Boyle invited communities around the UK to gather on beaches, on the 100th anniversary of Armistice to say thank you and goodbye.

Millions contributed to the First World War, many of them departing from these shores.  At low tide, on selected beaches around the UK, over the course of several hours, a portrait of an individual from the First World War will emerge from the sand and be washed away as the tide comes in. The sand art designs will be created by Sand in Your Eye.

Anyone who wants to join in can help create silhouettes of people in the sand, remembering the millions of lives lost or changed forever by the conflict. Individuals, families and communities will also be invited to read a new poem by poet Carol Ann Duffy.
