Organisers of a remarkable new exhibition Remembering 1916 – Life on the Western Front are offering great discounts on ticket prices for those who come early.
Remembering 1916 is a new showcase which is being presented by Whitgift school to coincide with the centenary of the First World War.
The WW1 Exhibition runs from Thursday March 10 – through to August 31 at the Whitgift Exhibition Centre, Haling Park, South Croydon CR23 6YT.
There is to be an amazing 50% discount off all tickets until March 31st.
Remembering 1916 – Life on the Western Front is a major new exhibition telling the story of a pivotal year of the First World War, through a unique series of personal stories.
Follow the fascinating personal testimony of those on both sides of war and uncover a fresh perspective on the battles of Verdun, Jutland and the Somme; and well-known characters such as Lord Kitchener and Manfred von Richthofen, later known as the infamous ‘Red Baron’. In contrast, Remembering 1916 also reveals a sequence of previously untold stories of individuals, on both the Western and Home fronts; ordinary people with extraordinary lives. These lives, events and themes of 1916 are illustrated by more than 600 original artefacts, many of which have never been on public display before.
10am – 5pm, 7 days a week (last entry 4:00pm)
