Over 5 million people travelled from across the country and around the world to see the installation of 888,246 ceramic poppies at the Tower of London. The commemorative artwork, by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, caught the nation’s imagination and acted as a place of pilgrimage for millions of people to reflect on the First World War, 100 years since its outbreak in 1914.

Music: Silent Night by Timbre. Silent Night was sung simultaneously in French, English and German by troops during the Christmas Truce of 1914 during the First World War, as it was one carol that soldiers on both sides of the front line knew.
