Lincolnshire in world war one.

This project aims to tell the story of the importance of Lincolnshire during World War 1.

A series oftravelling exhibitions will be held all over Lincolnshire and based in Village Halls, Heritage Centres etc and will not only focus on urban areas but also on rural areas and small communities. These exhibitions will stay at each location for between 7-10 days and we are hoping to be able to work with local schools, youth groups and village organisations.

There will also be information packs available for the communities to use on self-directed visits. These exhibitions will commence in July 2017 and continue through the duration of the project, ending in 2020.

During the summer of 2018, our two major static exhibitions will be held at RAF Scampton Heritage and Ethos Centre and also at The Collection Museum in Lincoln. Scampton will house an authentic reproduction of a WW1 airfield complete with aircraft whilst The Collection will focus on the work carried out on the design and production of aircraft as well as the threat to the Country of the Zeppelin and Lincolnshire’s role in defeating this menace.

Education sessions will also accompany these two exhibitions and details will be sent out to all Schools nearer the time.
