Herts at War seeks lottery funding for Centenary commemoration


Centenary community project Herts at War is in the process of seeking funding from the UK’s National Lottery Heritage Fund.

If successful, it hopes to set up an exhibition on Hertfordshire’s experience in World War I. This will open as a pop-up museum in Letchworth town centre in 2014 and then tour to various locations around the county. Entry will be free to the public.

Organisers of the project intend to work in line with a ‘real-time’ concept that will chart the progress of the war day-by-day 100 years after the event, allowing Hertfordshire residents to understand what their ancestors of a century ago would have experienced.

The project’s aim is to remember the sacrifice of the people of Hertfordshire during World War I and to provide understanding of those whose lives were inevitably changed by the conflict.
