On Tuesday 14th August, we visited the Cloth Hall and performed our commemorative showcase. The original Cloth Hall (1300s) lay in ruins after artillery fire destroyed it during WW1. It was meticulously rebuilt in every detail from 1933 to 1967 and houses the In Flanders Fields Museum. The architecture stayed true to the original building and we felt like we had stepped into a piece of history preserved in Ypres.
Many members of the public were drawn to the Cloth Hall as we performed our commemorative piece. When the performance ended, we received many wonderful stories of families who were visiting from every corner of the world to remember a loved one and our young people received many thanks from the public, who felt that their performance captured the meaning of respect and remembrance to all fallen heroes.
