Exhibition focuses on those who served in the Great War
A new exhibition at Beverley Treasure House helps tell the stories of more than 700 local men who went to serve during the Great War. It’s one of three exhibitions opening there this Saturday (November 10).
“First World War Lives” is based on a project which saw volunteers trawl through a huge amount of historical data, such as newspapers, rolls of honour and ledgers, to discover more about the war and its impact upon our area. And on Saturday afternoon, between 1 and 3pm, there’s a chance to meet some of those involved with the research.
The following Saturday, November 17th, there’s a special study day, where anyone researching family members who may have served in the war, will be able to access the wealth of records available within the East Riding Archives. The day starts at 10am and continues to 3.30pm, and costs £25, with lunch and refreshments provided. Booking is essential on 01482 392699.
Meanwhile, a second exhibition opening at the Treasure House this Saturday features artworks created by Paul Clifford based on First World War photographs from the East Riding Archives. Paul’s father had served as part of the East Riding Yeomanry’s Desert Expeditionary Force. And finally, “Working Hands” is an exhibition of photographs by Peter Barker taken in and around Beverley between 2014 and 2017 focussing on manual skills.
