All Together Now

The first year of commemoration for the First World War was symbolised in Liverpool in All Together Now, a sculpture showing The Christmas Truce – when enemy soldiers talked together and famously played football –  something that has major resonances not just through the famous Sainsbury’s advert but in new work by poets from Carol Ann Duffy to Ian McMillan.

In this famous football city it is fitting that Andy Stewart’s sculpture of two soldiers shaking hands was unveiled in December at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church, itself an iconic symbol of survival and commemoration related to the Second World War.
