Talks and Events


When WW1 started in 1918 Princess Mary, daughter of Queen Victoria was just 17 years old.

She decided that all the soldiers and sailors should receive a Christmas gift to show the appreciation of the nation.

Come to this workshop and discover this amazing story and how it developed over the four years of the war.  People of all ages will join together to make handmade sweets to fill their own 'Princess Mary Tin' in preparation for Easter

 You can turn up on the day but Sheena would really appreciate it if she knew  how many people to expect so that she can be sure that there are sufficient materials for everyone to have a really good time making the sweets they like best.

 Please try to contact Diana Lee, by Friday 23rd to let her know if you are coming.


By kind invitation of East Keswick Flower Club who invite people, who are interested in fashion

 at the time of WW1, to join them at their Afternoon Tea and Talk

A costumed performance by Margaret Jowett and Kathy White as they evoke memories of WW1

through the music, verse and stories.  This presentation has been specially  commissioned by

 'Collingham and Linton Remembers'

Military Historian, Alan Berry, will be following the trials and triumphs of several families as he traces the 

lives of ordinary men and women.  Some may have ought in WW1, but all will have played a part, in the factories, 

on the farms and in the War Effort at home.  

If you would like Alan to research a member of your family please contact him by email: no later than April 15th.
