UPDATE 09 Nov 2018 - An ITV article listing beaches taking part and service people to be honoured.


"Weston-super-Mare will be part of Pages of the Sea, Danny Boyle’s commission for 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. On 11 November 2018, the public is invited to gather on beaches across the UK for an informal, nationwide gesture of remembrance for the men and women who left their home shores during the First World War.


Millions of people served in the First World War and many left from beaches around the UK. Theatre Orchard, with the support of the Grand Pier, will be leading events at Weston-super-Mare beach on Sunday 11 November.  Each event centres around the drawing of a large-scale portrait of a casualty from the First World War, designed by sand artists Sand In Your Eye, which will be washed away as the tide comes in. In addition, 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."  For further information see here
