Unknown Warrior Graphic Tender Brief

2020 marks the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey. The National Army Museum (NAM) is commemorating this event with an exhibition at the Museum that runs from 19th October 2020 - 14th February 2021 entitled Buried Among Kings: The Story of the Unknown Warrior. In early November, we will have a pop- up exhibition at Victoria Station for 8 days on our clever frame system from 9th - 16th November. The National Army Museum wishes to appoint a graphics contractor to print and install graphics for the National Army Museum's temporary exhibition and for the Victoria Station pop up as detailed on Annex A, the Graphic Schedule. The value of the tender is £8,100 for the entire package and responses should be broken down and detailed against each element in the column marked 'Cost' on Annex A. The exhibition at the Museum is divided into 13 sections which chart the journey of the Unknown Warrior from the requirement to appease families whose relatives bodies could not be repatriated after WWI, the selection of the body and the journey home to England. The exhibition also looks at commemoration through the development of the Cenotaph, which acted as a focus for the grief of the nation, through to village war memorials to local soldiers. By contrast the Victoria Station exhibition, is routed in the train journey that was undertaken on 20 November 1920 when the carriage carrying the Unknown Soldier arrived at Platform 8 at 8.32pm.
