Following the success of The St Barnabas Pilgrimage in 2017, and Walking with Ghosts, we are delighted to be partnering with Passchedaele Memorial Museum, Zonnebeke, to create a new site-specific immersive heritage experience for the West Flanders 'Year of the Cemetery' programme.

For three days in May (24-26 May) De Weg Terug will transform Passchendaele Memorial Museum into an immersive multimedia, multilingual experience, exploring the post-war history of Zonnebeke.  Starting in the dug-outs, moving through the trenches and concluding in an open-air show in the chateau grounds (open-air showing Friday and Saturday only), the experience will move between intimate moments of encounter with the past and epic spectacle. Bringing live performance together with immersive augmented reality De Weg Terug will be offer a unique experience exploring the lesser-known stories of Zonnebeke and its community after the First World War.

Suitable for all ages. 

Disability access provided.

Presented in Dutch and English (do we need other languages?) 

Tickets will be available from spring 2024.

The project is co-written and co-directed by Helen Brooks and Jayne Thompson, with projection artist, Howard Griffin and historical consultant, Mark Connolly.
