Ypres 2016 - Poppy Cenotaph, Ypres, Belgium

1st – 6th September 2016

In September 2016, a striking new World War 1 Cenotaph will be created at the Grote Markt, in front of the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, Belgium. The Cenotaph will be located adjacent to the German War Cemetery at Langemark Poelkapelle.

Standing 7m tall and weighing 12 tonne, the metal Cenotaph for the 21st century will feature the evocative image of a single Flanders poppy surrounded by a field of 2016 steel poppies handcrafted by blacksmiths and farriers worldwide.

Hundreds of blacksmiths and farriers from around the world will come together in Ypres to create the Cenotaph in the week-long event.

Over £100k has already been raised towards the project but we need your help to raise the additional amount needed.

Your contribution will make a big difference in helping create the striking Cenotaph so please donate through our crowdfunding.
