Market Square, Ieper – 30 July

On the evening of 30 July at 20:00 there will be the nightly Last Post ceremony held at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Menin Gate. This will be an intimate service under the Gate, following the pattern of the regular service held every night and will have a strictly limited number of attendees.

Located just a few hundred metres away from the Menin Gate, large screens in Ieper Market Square will provide the opportunity for members of the public to watch the service. This will be followed by a multi-media cultural event, combining live performance with projection mapping on the iconic Cloth Hall, which will tell the story of the First world War on the Ypres Salient.

The event in the Market Square, which will be free of charge to attend, is expected to be subject to high public demand. For this reason, and so that we can anticipate how many people are interested in attending, it is very important that you let the organisers know if you would like to attend by registering below.
