Munitions laying on an Union Jack - from an album of photos from TH & J Daniels

In 2015 the Museum is interested in telling the stories around how the War stimulated creativity, innovation and technology.


In January and February we extended the One Man's War display from November 2014.

In March we took a look at the women who went to work in the factories through a collaboration with local artist Sue Brown - this collaboration will go on across the World War One commemoration period, and you can find out more here.

From our own collections we looked at the stories of Redler with an exhibition in Gallery 2 which ran throughout March.

The story of Alexander Paice and folding furniture is explored through a bite-size Foyer display. This was installed at the beginning of June and will run until 6th September.

We are also still interested in telling other local stories such as that of the Dudbridge Ironworks who made aeroplane engines for the French, the history of the Shoddy factories, and the stories associated with the war work at Listers, Daniels, Erinoid and Pedersens.

We are hoping to work with the local history societies and other interested parties to tell these stories - if you have something to contribute please contact us

 

Later in 2015 the Museum is interested in telling the stories around how the War stimulated creativity, innovation and technology.
