War Horse 1

1:28pm 28th August 2014

Wareham Choral Society, together with Wareham Museum, are putting a twist on their WW1 display.

They are asking people to tell the town's war narrative through objects and stories they themselves have collected over the years.

The committee would like to see all 1914-1918 objects whether military or civilian, even if they are seemingly mundane.

They would also collecting oral histories of life on Purbeck so if you have a story to tell or an object, take them to Lady St. Mary Parish Hall, Wareham on Saturday 13th September from 10am until 2pm 

With permission from the owners the committee are hoping to create an exhibit about Wareham during the Great War during the Wareham Choral Society's memorial concert on November 15th.
