An exhibition of objects and memories exploring the experiences of Tees Valley residents in the months following the First World War.
In the months between the Armistice of November 1918 and Peace Day, on 19 July 1919, Britain gradually came to terms with peace. Building on contributions gathered at a series of public roadshows, Rememorial WWI highlights key themes that help explain how society had been changed by the First World War and asks us to consider what the legacy means today. This project brings together objects, memories and personal narratives relating to discharged military personnel, the empowerment of women, coping with disability, bereavement and social change. Findings from local and national collections, including recorded memories, local newspapers and unique artefacts, have been drawn together to give insight into this important and formative period.
The exhibition is displayed between Preston Park Museum & Grounds and Kirkleatham Museum; visit both sites to discover the fascinating story of this unique period and its effects on our lives today.
Please note: access to the exhibition may be restricted on some days; please contact the museum to confirm opening arrangements.
