FREE EVENT: Discovering the First World War in Yorkshire and the Humber
27 Oct


Are you currently involved in a project to commemorate the First World War centenary?

Are you considering applying for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund?

We would like to invite you to a free Discovery Day to learn more about the war and its legacies, hear about other local projects, and share your own experiences.

Staff from the HLF will be on hand to answer any queries, and the day is being organised by members of the AHRC First World War public engagement centres, who support HLF-funded projects.

Speakers include:

  • Rob Freeman, ‘Craven and the First World War project’
  • New Focus, Impressions Gallery, Bradford, ‘No Man’s Land’: Uncovering women’s viewpoints on the First World War’
  • Clements Hall local history group, York ‘The impact of a Zeppelin raid on York’
  • Alison Fell, ‘The war in Yorkshire: International connections’

The centenary of the First World War has inspired people to find out more about the War and its impact on individuals, communities, cities and society. If you have an idea for a project, the five First World War engagement centres can link you to researchers and experts who can help with your research, support your project or advise about different methods for documenting and sharing your findings.

This is a free event, but please register your attendance here

Lunch will be provided.

Each of the five centres has an area of specialism and has developed themes within these areas. The centres also run workshops and events and share news of the projects they are supporting.
