Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum looking for help to make community art

Ian Hughes 20th Jun, 2018   0

PEOPLE are being urged to help create a community art piece in Warwick to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum will host a free family event on Saturday (June 23) from 10.30am to 4pm.

All ages and artistic ability will be able to take part in creating the work, and to also design their own commemorative coaster to take home.

There will also be the chance to learn more about the Great War at the St John’s House museum, and discover what it was like in the Home Guard.




Museum curator Stephanie Bennett said: “As 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War we wanted to do something special to remember the historic occasion.

“The Royal Warwickshire Regiment lost over 11,500 men in the conflict. We are doing a family friendly event that everybody is welcome to join in.


Warwick District Council has sponsored the event.
