Impact: First World War Legacies

  • 28 April 2018 4:30-6pm

Our Collections Manager, Hannah Rogers, will introduce our new exhibition, part of a Heritage Lottery Funded First World War project. We have been working to explore stories of local soldiers, after the Armistice had been signed and how the war continued to effect their lives. We are also looking at ways in which those who did not return have been remembered.

Come along to discover the captivating and moving stories uncovered by our work.
