Get your hands on First World War history

There’s an opportunity for people to handle original documents and letters from the First World War archives in the town hall Discovery Centre on Saturday, 11 October, between 1pm and 3pm.

This is one of a number of events arranged to mark the centenary of World War One and people will also be able to visit the Road to War exhibition, which tells the story of the First World War through the eyes of local people.

Another hands on history event will take place in the Discovery Centre on Saturday, 8 November.
