Visitors to Stowe Gardens between 19 October 2023 and 4 January 2024 will be able to walk amongst the silhouettes of 200 life-size soldiers in the historic landscape gardens.
This moving statement of commemoration, remembrance and honour offers visitors space to reflect and connect within the natural landscape around Octagon Lake.
The installation is created in partnership with Standing With Giants, a community-based project which works to raise understanding and appreciation of our freedom and to remember and pay tribute to those who gave their lives so we could live ours today.
