Discover the remarkable story of the Unknown Warrior at this online event with Westminster Abbey and the National Army Museum.

  • Art, Heritage

The Unknown Warrior was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey one hundred years ago. At this special online event your family will:

- Explore the tale of David Railton in an interactive Makaton storytelling, discovering how one man's idea to honour the fallen of the First World War became a reality

- Create your own unique and memorable wreath to mark the Unknown Warrior, or someone important in your life, just like the wreaths that have been laid at this special grave in the Abbey for 100 years

This is a family event for children (aged 8+) and adults to attend together over Zoom. Please book one ticket per family (free). Lone adults are unable to attend. After booking, a member of the National Army Museum Learning Team will be in touch to confirm the name and ages of the children attending — this is for safeguarding purposes. On the day of the session, you will be sent a Zoom link allowing you to join, 30 minutes before the start.

For a sneak peek into the story of this special grave before you join the session, your family can enjoy this short video: www.westminster-abbey.org/teaching-resources/the-unknown-warrior-a-four-minute-film

And parents and carers can find out more about the Warrior's story in this article specially commissioned to mark the centenary of his burial in the Abbey in November: www.westminster-abbey.org/about-the-abbey/history/buried-among-the-kings
