Today the full list of beaches was announced as part of Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea.
There will be beaches across the UK and the Republic of Ireland, from Orkney to St Ives, Donegal to Brancaster. Visit the website for the full list of beaches.
On 11 November, communities will gather on beaches across the UK and the Republic of Ireland to say goodbye and thank you, to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.
Find out more about the people and stories of the First World War in your area; explore the story of the face being drawn in the sand on your local beach; create poetry and music to be shared on beaches on the day and work with artists and writers to explore the themes of the First World War through poetry and art.
