Pages of the Sea - Ayr
Danny Boyle's Pages of the Sea at Ayr Beach is a unique moment to say goodbye, together, to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.
About Pages of the Sea - Ayr
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Filmmaker Danny Boyle invites you to join him in marking 100 years since Armistice. Pages of the Sea is a unique moment to say goodbye, together, to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.
You’re invited to Ayr Beach where, over the course of several hours, a large-scale sand portrait of a First World War casualty 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.
National Theatre of Scotland leads the event at Ayr Beach in partnership with North Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Council, South Ayrshire Council and The Gaiety. In addition to the portrait, the public will be asked to join in by creating silhouettes of people in the sand, remembering the millions of lives lost or changed forever by the conflict. Please note the scale of the sand art is weather-dependant.
Carol Ann Duffy has written a poem especially for the moment, to be read by individuals, families and communities on the day. Visit ‘Pages of the Sea Ayr workshop’ to learn about the open workshop ahead of the event.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Pages of the Sea - Ayr are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
