Somme

Posted on 20 May 2016
The museum is holding a drop in session with Martin Barry on Saturday 4 June, 10.30 to 4.00. Martin is appealing for family stories of the Battle of the Somme. As part of the continuing remembrance, memory and commemoration projects around the centenary of the First World War, the museum will be hosting an exhibition entitled 'Somme', due to open on the 1 July. The battle was fought from the 1 July until the 13 November 1916. Part of the exhibition will focus on 'Wimborne's Somme' and we wish to invite people from Wimborne and other parts of East Dorset to come and share their families' stories about a battle that more than anything seems to represent our view of the Great War. Admission is FREE for those attending the session. For further information please contact the museum.
