OPENING DATES & TIMES

Saturday 29th September – Sunday 14th October

10am – 5pm Daily

 ‘The Trench’ stacked with the Shrouds will go on display at Aerospace Bristol this month.

This will be the final chance to see the Shrouds before they go on display in London. Visitors can walk amongst the fallen in this thought-provoking and immersive artwork.

Along the outside of the Trench the Commonwealth War Graves Commission has provided a list of the names of all of the 72,396 missing from the battle of the Somme, whose names are also engraved on the Thiepval Memorial.

Entry to this event is FREE but if visitors wish to visit Aerospace, standard ticket prices will apply.

We would like to thank South Gloucestershire Council, Aerospace Bristol, DHL, YTL Community, Airbus and SSAFA Bristol & South Gloucestershire for their support for this event.
