Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial

22 August 2014

There will be restricted access to the Menin Gate Memorial on 28 October, with a national ceremony at the monument on that date marking the First Battle of Ypres. The stairs on the left hand side coming from the town will be closed off from 9am. The Memorial itself will be closed off entirely from 2pm.

The ceremony, which will begin at 5.30pm, can be observed on a big screen from the market place in Ypres and will also be broadcast live to Belgian viewers via VRT.
