Meet eyewitnesses to conflict and gain first-hand insight into the impact of war on people’s lives.

Find our special guests across the museum, giving an opportunity for all visitors to hear their personal stories - ranging from driving a tank, to being evacuated from the place they called home.

Join in interactive workshops and meet invited illustrators, authors and journalists who will allow you to explore how these memories can be recorded in greater detail.

  • Author: Katherine Woodfine, Children’s Author. (titles include; The Sinclair’s Mysteries and Taylor and Rose - Secret Agents).
