Newcastle Remembers

20 September – 12 November

A Centenary Exhibition to mark 100 years since the start of World War One.

Using film, original documents and objects this exhibition tells the stories of people from the Borough of Newcastle who lived during the war.

Fascinating objects from the 'battlefront' will be on display giving us an insight into what it was like for local soliders who went to fight in the Great War.

This exhibition will also deal with what life was like on the home front. Taking a look at rationing, charity work and the lives of women.
