Experience the beauty of Belgium and take part in the famous Last Post ceremony!

This small region of Belgium has it all, from picturesque cities such as Bruges and Ghent, through to coastal resorts, such as Blankenberge and Ostend. Add to this the WWI battlefields centred around Ypres, and it is clear to see that Flanders is full of unique and memorable performance experiences. Most importantly, during the WWI Centenary commemorations, your ensemble will have the opportunity to pay your respects by participating in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate.
