Exhibition at The Hive Marks 100th Anniversary of First World War

  • 1st August 2014

An exhibition from Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service is being held at The Hive to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The exhibition begins on Monday 4 August to mark the 100th anniversary of the date Great Britain entered the war.

The displays will include photographs and documents based on three main themes – Gender and Home Front, Childhood, and Cities at War – commemorating how the war touched and changed the lives of people across Worcestershire.

The Hive ‘Worcestershire Great War Exhibition’ is part of the Worcestershire World War One Hundred programme. The programme is one of the largest across England  and will commemorate the First World War from 2014 to 2018 with exhibitions, parades, concerts, church services and remembrance events, involving cultural and heritage organisations County-wide.

The exhibition at The Hive has been part-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Voices of War and Peace, First World War Engagement centre and is free of charge.   

The Hive will also be hosting a debate on ‘Have we forgotten the horrors of war?’ in November, as part of the Worcestershire World War 100 programme, with the Royal Society of Arts.
