Salonika 25

Cheltenham

25 June - 31 October 2018

 

salo

 

Salonika has been largely forgotten in the narrative of WW1. However, 25 soldiers in Cheltenham died there either in combat or from illness. This installation aims to highlight those who died by pasting their names together on the wall of the BT Building on Vittoria Walk.

The site is significant. When he was 7 years old Holst moved from what is now The Holst Birthplace Museum to a house on this road, since demolished. The wall is also opposite the YMCA. Holst worked for the YMCA in Salonika as Musical Director. The YMCA played a significant part in WW1, providing amongst other things, marquees and huts with refreshments and note paper for soldiers.
