First World War: then and now

“The First World War affected millions across the globe and shaped the world we live in. The Centenary is a chance to understand the war better, uncover its stories and explore what it means to us today. Everyone should have the chance to discover more about the war and mark the Centenary. That’s why we are providing this special grant programme for community projects.” Heritage Lottery Fund

Throughout 2018 we will be running a series of events to showcase the programme. Click the link to see the list. We hope you can join us for as many as possible.
