It has taken a year’s planning and a tremendous amount of research and coordination to bring you the fascinating stories of our local people and the contribution our communities made.

Over 300 people turned out on 3rd August to support our event. After visiting the “Secret Cinema” in The Green Room and enjoying a vintage tea, our audiences were entertained by a wonderful soundscape, curated by Nicholas Jardine. The music really set the scene and highlights of the day included performances by Elaine Walsh and Leah Miles.

The Exhibition, which will remain on display at the museum until December 14th, uses a wide range of objects and photographs both from the museum collection and local people to tell the story of life in The Hadhams during The Great War. The display includes artwork by Years 5 and 6 from St. Andrew’s School and we look forward to continuing to work with them next year.

We were delighted with all the positive feedback on the day and we would like to say a huge thank you to all the museum volunteers and local people who have taken part so far. It was wonderful support to have our 6th form volunteer team, under the guidance of Waitrose staff in the kitchens!

It does not stop here, the exhibition and wider project continues to grow and we will be bringing more events and activities over the coming months.
