Our Next Event

World War 1 Exhibition

World War 1 Exhibition

When: 18 April 2014 to 11 November 2014
Where: Elliotts Store

Elliotts Store is staging an exhibition to commemorate the start of World War 1 (1914 -1918), 2014 being the 100th anniversary of the start of this conflict, believed at the time to be the "War to end all Wars".

Members of the Elliott family were involved in the war, so we felt it appropriate to honour the Elliott family and the countless others who gave not only their services but also their life.

The exhibition will run from April 2014 through to September although visits can be accommodated by arrangement up to early November. As a Society with education at its core, we are particularly keen to facilitate group visits, especially from Schools and Colleges.

The exhibition itself will officially close on 11th November 2014, the anniversary of  Armistice Day in 1918 when at the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month in 1918 the guns fell silent.  

If you require any further information, please email us at or telephone Brigette on 01579 384381.  Alternatively, information and a copy of a guide to the exhibition can be read by visiting our website,, and clicking on the Society Events tab.  This guide can be printed and brought with you on your visit.
