As part of the commemorations of the Zeppelin bombing in 1917 (see here for more information), Sally Hogarth will be unveiling her new artwork memorial ‘Silent Raid’. The memorial to those who lost their lives has been commissioned by Southwark Council, and has been a year in the making. The memorial consists of 10 sculptured model houses, placed in 7 locations in the park, close to where the people lost their lives.
Wednesday, 17 October, 5:30-7pm
Meet at Theatre Delicatessen, in the Old Library on Wells Way, for a walk around the locations for the memorial, with speeches, refreshments, a poem by Koko and more. To book tickets for the launch event, please see the Eventbrite page.
The launch will be exactly 101 years after the attack and is part of the Zeppelin 1917 programme of events in Burgess Park about the First World War.
