Memories of August 1914, part of 14-18 NOW, is one the UK's landmark events to mark the centenary of the start of First World War. It comes just two years after Liverpool came to a standstill for Sea Odyssey which paid tribute to the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic.

The event saw one million people converge on the streets, taking in the awe-inspiring sight of three beautifully crafted giants which roamed the city on a heart-rending tale of love, loss and reunion. Those three days in April 2012 have become some of the most unforgettable in Liverpool's history and this new event is expected to join Sea Odyssey and become etched in the hearts and minds of everyone lucky enough to be part of the event.

Memories of 1914 is co-commissioned by Culture Liverpool and 14-18 NOW, The First World War Centenary Art Commissions.
