The People’s Collection will visit seven venues across Worcestershire from 21 May culminating in an exhibition at The Hive to coincide with Armistice in November. The project, part of the Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme, has been four years in the making with the team collecting letters, photographers and objects from across the County.

The Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme received the largest Heritage Lottery Fund grant for a World War One commemoration outside London, to tell the stories of Worcestershire people, their involvement with and personal legacy from the war. Throughout this time people from across the county have been invited to share their family stories about the contribution the county and its people made to the First World War and it is these contributions which will be on show in The People’s Collection.

The touring exhibition will visit Bromsgrove Library, Redditch Library, Malvern Library, Bewdley Museum, Number 8 and The Almonry Heritage Centre before coming together at The Hive in Worcester. Each exhibition will feature stories relevant to that specific location as well as information relevant to the County as a whole.
