Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum’s new exhibition Are You In This? will open on Saturday 28 July with a family fun day and run until Sunday 11 November 2018.
From 1-3.30pm come along and celebrate the opening of the First World War exhibition with dressing up, poppy making crafts, and entertainment from Royal Spa Brass.
Are You In This? will mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, and tell the story of Leamington Spa and its people during the conflict. Thousands of local men and women served in the armed forces or as nurses during the war. Troops were billeted in the area and wounded soldiers were treated at the local hospitals. Women took over men’s jobs. People gave their time and money to the war effort in a wide range of ways. The lives of many local people were affected forever, whether by disability or bereavement.
The exhibition will explore these stories through fascinating objects including: uniforms, medals and weapons; photographs and personal letters; and medical equipment including a wheelchair and an early x-ray machine. This will also be a rare opportunity to see a large number of First World War posters from the museum’s collection.
Throughout the exhibition there will be a chance to go on monthly free guided First World War walking tours of historic landmarks around Leamington. These tours will take place on Saturday 28 July and 18 August, Friday 5 and Saturday 6 October, Friday 2 and Saturday 3 November at 11am & 2pm. Please call 01926 742700 to book a place, there is a suggested donation of £5.
Admission is free.
