Trent to Trenches – Programme of Great War Centenary Events

Trent to Trenches is a City and County-wide programme of events taking place during 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War. It includes a major exhibition at Nottingham Castle from Saturday 26th July to Sunday 16th November 2014, together with a range of smaller exhibitions, events and research projects taking place throught the county.

Nottingham Castle Exhibition

Marking one hundred years since the outbreak of the Great War, this exhibition explores the experiences of the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, at home and in the trenches in Northern France, through powerful images, diaries, letters and artefacts. The exhibition will draw on a range of collections, including loans from national institutions. The themes will be broad ranging, covering the involvement of local people in all theatres of the global conflict, their involvement in all services and on the home front and examining the changes wrought on society by the conflict.

Further information about the project and how you could become involved can be found on the Trent to Trenches website.
