Heritage Open Days 2014: Dorking & District Museum & Heritage Centre

  • 11 — 13 September 2014

Dorking Muesum and Heritage Centre was re-opened in 2012 after a major refurbishment. It is the home to many excellent exhibits and paintings from Dorking's past. Especially for Heritage Open Days the museum will be running a special exhibition entitled: 'Dorking in 1914 and the impact of the outbreak of war on the town and villages'. It will be a much bigger exhibition than usual and will be the first in a series on the experience of war locally. It will include display material inside and out, featuring all aspects of town life, biographies of those who recruited and those who enlisted and asking the question: 'was enlistment really voluntary?'.


Please refer to the Heritage Open Days website for booking details and timings.
