Danny Boyle  – Pages of the Sea

Danny Boyle – Pages of the Sea

Pages of the Sea Event. Activate are still looking for volunteers for Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea Event on the 11th November on Lyme Regis beach.

You’re invited to beaches across the UK where, over the course of several hours, a portrait of an individual from the First World War will emerge from the sand. And then, as the tide rises, watch as it’s washed away as we take a moment to say a collective goodbye. Carol Ann Duffy has written a poem especially for the moment, to be read by individuals, families and communities on the day.

If you can spare some time to help make these events happen, then please consider joining our friendly volunteer team. Contact Andrea Frankham-Hughes on andrea@activateperformingarts.org.uk mob:07971 058 336
