WW1 Exhibition – A shoe maker goes to War | 2 August - 9 November 2014
In July 1914 almost ten thousand men joined the Northamptonshire regiment. One month later Britain was at war with Germany in what was called "the war to end all wars."
This exhibition will look at the stories of some of the shoemakers who fought and how their absence affected those they left behind. Produced in partnership with the Northamptonshire Regimental Association and the Northamptonshire Yeomanry Association.
This exhibition is in conjunction with the Conflict and Community project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund
