The Green Howards Museum is Richmond, North Yorkshire.

We tell the story of the regiment from its earliest times, through 300 years of conflict, service and sacrifice.

The museum is currently closed for redevelopment.

Exhibition: The first battle - Ypres 1914

  • 14 October 2014 — 30 April 2015 *on now

When the Green Howards Museum reopens in the autumn, our first exhibition will centre on the battle of Ypres (October and November 1914).

This battle was the last to involve open, mobile warfare on the Western Front, before entrenchment and stalemate set in.

By the end of November 1914 the Green Howards had lost a generation of professional, trained soldiers.

The exhibition will explore the role played by the Green Howards during the battle, and also track the experiences of soldiers and their families through diaries, paintings and personal effects.

The exhibition will run until April 2015.

Words on War

  • 24 February — 14 November 2014 *on now

During the summer term, Boroughbridge High School, Hackforth and Hornby, and Barton Church of England Primary Schools will be working with freelance arts specialists to create new work inspired by the First World War.

The project involves five half-day outreach sessions in each school, leading to a full day at the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond to include further learning and a performance by everyone who has taken part. Brand new material, including songs, music and poetry relating to the First World War will be created to mark the centenary anniversary. Pupils from Richmond's Church of England and St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary Schools will watch the final performance. Please note this performance will not be open to the public, however, you can now watch a short film about the project, accompanied by the new song that has been created via the Words on War webpage.
