Join us for a special WWI living history event. See
costumed re-enactors showing how the Tommies would relax
on the home front and what weapons and kit they used when
fighting. Nurse and chaplain re-enactors will demonstrate
how they supported the troops on the front line and back

Visitors can take part in a poppy trail and dress up in
WWI officer and nurse costumes.

On Saturday 30th March, there will also be the
opportunity to chat to our Museum team about educational
visits, group visits, experience days, weddings and event
