  • 6 — 27 September 2014 *on now

Women war artists were commissioned in the First World War, but had few opportunities to venture beyond the domestic, social, and industrial operations on the home front.

This public art exhibition has commissioned seven female artists (Nicky Scott-Francis, Jolanta Jagiello, Elisabeta Chojack-Mysko, Sara Scott, Louise Kosinska, Monica Wheeler, and Jill Rock) to give a new perspective on battle and life on the front line as well as the home front.

Zeppelin Nights: London in the First World War

  • 23 September 2014 7-8:30pm

"London at War" conjures up the Blitz of 1940-41 rather than the First World War,yet, from day one on 4 August 1914, London was given over to the machinery of total war.
Its strategy was conducted from Whitehall, hundreds of thousands of men from Britain and overseas passed through its railway stations, their wounded were nursed in its hospitals, and Londoners endured aerial bombing from Zeppelins and giant biplanes. The war impacted on London and Londers in ways that changed them forever.
