Join us in this historic and unique event at the Olympic Park, recognising those who made the ultimate sacrifice during The Battle of the Somme when more than 1,000,000 men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.

 

To mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, 72,396 shrouded figures will be laid out in rows, shoulder to shoulder covering an area over 4000 square metres across the South Park Lawn (next to the ArcelorMittal Orbit). Each figure represents a British serviceman killed at The Battle of the Somme who has no known grave, many of whose bodies were never recovered from the battlefields. 

 

We include entrance to the ArcelorMittal Orbit where we can zoom high into the clouds and explore London’s famous skyline taking in a breath-taking panorama of up to 20 miles across London whilst admiring this astonishing installation from the observation platforms and the outside observation walkway suspended 262ft above the ground.
