Medals, souvenirs and legacy is the theme for exhibitions in 2018 - we will be showing objects from our own collections including death plaques, victory medals and souvenirs such as bullets and postcards.

The outline programme for the year is as follows, though this is subject to change so please keep an eye on our calendar for the most up to date information.

1 January - 4 March : Medals. This display will look at medals from the Museum Collections

6 March - 29 April : Medals by Sue Brown. Sue is our Artist in Residence for the World War One period. She will be producing artwork on the theme of medals for display during this period. You can find out more about Sue and her work here

2 May - 2 September : Souvenirs. This display takes in souvenirs acquired or made by soldiers, prisoners and others during the War

5 September - 2 December : Peace and Commemoration. This display will look at the end of the war with special reference to how the peace was received, and early steps towards commemoration of the war and memorialisation of those lost.

We want to work with local history societies and other interested parties - if you have something you would like to contribute please contact us
