The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round Centre for Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. The Arboretum is part of The Royal British Legion family of charities. Sited in the heart of the Nation, with 50,000 maturing trees and nearly 300 memorials, it is a beautiful and lasting tribute to those who serve their country or who have died in conflict.

The Arboretum is situated on land gifted by Lafarge Tarmac and is home to the striking Armed Forces Memorial which commemorates those who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorism from the end of the Second World War to the current conflict in Afghanistan.

What the War Did: Social Change During World War I Symposium

  • 26 — 27 September 2017 9:30am-4:30pm

As well as examining the changing role of women during the conflict - focussing on the care of the wounded on both the Western and Home fronts, other themes will consider the Home Front at a more local level. Topics to be explored by a wealth of speakers include the female vote, food crises, attitudes towards conscientious objectors, the changing role of the country estate house as convalesce homes, and the development of female labour in traditionally male roles.

The programme will also offer opportunities to explore our galleries and to participate in workshops and guided tours of our 150-acre site.

The National Memorial Arboretum’s symposium is being organised in partnership with our parent charity, The Royal British Legion, and is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Ticket prices include tea, coffee and a buffet lunch on both the 26 & 27 September.
