    Norfolk in the First World War

    April 29

    Hands on History

    Sat 29 Apr

    10am - 4pm

    Free and family friendly

    The Forum hosts a hands-on session on the Second Battle of Gaza. Meet Military Historian Neil Storey and handle WWI objects and uniforms. Explore the stories and experiences of Norfolk soldiers fighting a very distant war.

    Don’t miss the special First World War exhibition 'Finding the Fallen: The Battle of Gaza', along with films and work by Norfolk students, in The Gallery and Library in April through to early May.

    The hands-on history day is part of The Forum’s three year ‘Norfolk in the First World War: Somme to Armistice’ project honouring Norfolk’s WWI heroes. The project has been made possible thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
