14-18 NOW and the National Theatre present an exhibition that tells the story of the contemporary memorial ‘We’re here because we’re here’ created by Jeremy Deller. The performance took place on 1 July 2016 when more than 1400 voluntary participants in First World War uniform appeared unexpectedly in locations across the UK. The participants were a reminder of the 19,240 men who were killed on 1 July 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Each participant represented an individual soldier who was killed on that day. This exhibition tells the story of the project through images of the volunteers from across the UK and a BBC documentary charting the making of the project.
Due to a busy event in the Arts Centre, we apologise that the exhibition 'We're here because we're here' will not be on display between 13th - 22nd February
