For November 2018, Andover Town Council commissioned The Artroom to develop a large scale Community Arts project to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One.


With reference to the 215 names on the War Memorial in Andover, a collection of 215 life-size figures were created.

Each of these figures was ‘adopted’, and suitably decorated by a school class, community group or organisation in the Andover area.


On Saturday 10th November 2018 these figures were  gathered at Vigo Road Recreation Ground, and were the centrepiece of an emotional installation art piece.


John, from The Artroom, was proud to be the Lead Artist for this 'one off' art installation, and was so pleased that the 215 people named on the Andover War Memorial are once again at the heart of the Andover Community.
