First World War Exhibition

First World War Exhibition will take place from

10th-12th November 2017

Free entrance.

The Exhibition will take place in our Function room from 10-4pm each day. The exhibition organiser will be available for people to chat to.

The fourth exhibition in remembrance of local men who enlisted, many who would not return, takes place on 10th, 11th and 12 November 10am – 4pm. at Whittington Castle. We look at the third battle of Ypres - the horror that was Passchendaele, one of the most appalling campaigns in the history of warfare. The soldiers suffered mounting disillusion amid mud, terror, desolation and desperate privation. We pay tribute to the local men who lost their lives in 1917 in the mud and misery of the battlefield, as well as examining the role of the woman in war, both in the W.A.A.C. and at home.
