Barnard Castle, Bowes Museum, Co Durham. ‘To Serve King & Country’ exhibition explores the role of Teesdale in WWI. This marks the culmination of a 5 year project to illustrate the response of local people, the home front, and heroism in the face of war through memorabilia, stories and photographs. This will run from Oct 2018 – 18 Jan 2019.
A council spokesman said: “Members agreed with the newly-elected leader’s recommendation to overturn the earlier decision to move the service, meaning it will stay where it is. There will be a consultation on how the library will look in the future, with a further report due before cabinet early next year.”
On 1 April 2018, the Royal Air Force (RAF) celebrated its 100th birthday. To mark this special occasion, former members of the RAF, WAAF, WRAF and Preston Park Museum volunteers, have come together to create a display to showcase and commemorate our region’s involvement in the RAF, past and present.
Through memorabilia, archive and personal stories, the exhibition will celebrate the achievements of the people of Teesside during their service in the Air Force. Tue 19 Jun 2018 – Sun 16 Sep 2018 10:00 – 11:43 at Preston Park Museum, Yarm Road, Eaglescliffe, Stockton on Tees TS18 3RH
