1914-1918 Richmond at Home and at War: Local stories and their International Links
In the months leading up to the centenary of the start of the First World War, the Museum of Richmond identified a considerable gap in knowledge about Richmond borough during the war. Keen to change this, the museum secured a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a research project on the impact of the First World War on the local area.
A skilled and dedicated team of volunteers have now completed the research phase of the project and this has been used to develop an exhibition, school workshops, and public events.
The exhibition is on display at the Museum of Richmond Old Town Hall gallery until April 22 2015, before going on tour around the borough. Research is continuing to reveal new information about the war story in Richmond and beyond. These stories will be published on this blog over the next four years, together with details of related events.
