Past Exhibition: 1916 Impact & Legacy Exhibition

This exhibition explores the seismic events of the Battle of the Somme and the Easter Rising.

The exhibition presents local and national reaction a century ago and, through an international lens of war and revolution, highlights their interconnected nature.  It also examines the role these events and their commemoration have played in teh shaping of our identities.

An accompanying programme of exhibition workshops and volunteer led interpretative mini-bus tours will be available.  Places are limited and booking is essential.
