Tom Ashworth, a military and social historian, will be giving an illustrated talk based on his latest book ‘Endings and Aftermath’.

Indeed, they came home feeling that they were entitled to a better life – after all, promises had been made – they were coming home to a ‘Land Fit for Heroes’.
Except that it wasn’t.
Entry £5 (no booking required).

There will also be a display of posters featuring local WW1 soldiers prepared by children from Brockholes School
