The Great War Remembered Concert 2023


The Last Post Association would like to thank for having attended The Great War Remembered Concert in St. Martin’s Cathedral in Ieper. We hope that you, together with us, enjoyed the concert. 

The Great War Remembered Concert

The concert that helps to support our mission.

Annual concert on Armistice Day


Each year on Armistice Day, the Association organises the Great War Remembered concert in St. Martin’s Cathedral in Ieper. The concert aims to contribute to the nation’s annual day of remembrance by turning the clock back more than 100 years and immersing the public in the atmosphere of the Great War. Instrumental and vocal music of the very highest quality, combined with a series of original First World War images, make this concert a unique experience.

We offer our spectators a moving musical evocation of one of the world’s most terrible conflicts in the imposing setting of Ieper’s magnificent cathedral. The concert is one of the main fundraising activities of the Last Post Association.

Where words fail, music speaks

As a young viola player, Elisabeth was already deeply immersed in music: camps both in Belgium and abroad, concert tours… She joined the Westhoek Consort string orchestra and studied with Benny Barends at the Academy in Ieper and increasingly took the stage as a soloist. She has recently been studying at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent under the guidance of Hendrickje Van Kerckhove.

The Royal Ypriana Concert Band, led for more than 25 years by director Nico Logghe, is a contemporary music ensemble with over 80 gifted musicians, some of who are professional players.
What makes the band so distinctive is the comfortable manner in which they feel ‘at home’ with many different kinds of music.

Ypres Surrey Pipes & Drums

The Ypres Surrey Pipes and Drums first saw the light of day in 2007. Under the leadership of Pipe-Major Eric Remy, the YSPD has grown not only into a fine band, but also a close group of friends. Weekly rehearsals over many years allow the group to perform as a complete and harmonious musical whole.

The Last Post is daily played under the Menin Gate in honour of the memory of the soldiers of the former British Empire and its allies, who died in the Ypres Salient during the First World War.



Chorus, led by director Tineke Devoghel, is a mixed four-voice choir and has about 70 members. It is often accompanied by its own small orchestra, which includes a piano, flutes, clarinets and trumpet.

Saint-Martin Cathedral, Ypres – Belgium


St. Martin’s Cathedral, on the Vandenpeereboomplein in Ieper (behind the Cloth Hall), was completely destroyed during the First World War and rebuilt afterwards.

Because the concert takes place during the busy 11 November period, parking opportunities in the city centre are very limited. Sufficient parking spaces are usually available on either the Minneplein (500 metres) or Oudstrijderslaan (1000 metres).

Are you looking forward to the 2025 concert?
