This year marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, a World War One campaign associated with particularly large casualty figures which impacted dramatically on communities across the country.
To mark this centennial, Brockhole on Windermere is partnering with Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life to present a new temporary exhibition, concert and series of events in the central Lakes entitled: “Voices from the Somme 1916-2016”.
The exhibition and community workshops are generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund by a grant to Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life as part of its First World War: Now and Then programme which has allowed the Museum to bring these activities to Brockhole.
