Discover Canterbury's First World War Story

Canterbury-Stories_Display

Overview

‘Canterbury Stories’ is a part of the Canterbury 100’ collaborative project, a joint venture between some of the leading cultural institutions of Canterbury, to mark the centenary of World War One.

This special exhibition provides a Canterbury-focused insight into World War One through the personal stories of those who experienced it – not only the soldiers and nurses on the front line but also the men, women and children who remained on the ‘Home Front’.

‘Canterbury Stories’ aims to connect Cantabrians with their First World War heritage by allowing them to share their family’s wartime experiences through stories, photographs and objects. At the conclusion of the Centenary commemorations, these stories will be archived to serve as a permanent memorial.

On display until 3 September 2017 in the Cochrane gallery, Level 1.
