On 25th of April our project exhibition, “Training for War: Exploring Shoreham Army Camp 1914-1919” opened at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery with great success.
Behind the Scenes:
The open day was well-attended with around 60-70 guests including many of our volunteers, partners and supporters.
Open day visitors
Worthing Mayor Vic Walker and Deputy Mayor Michael Donin gave great speeches and the Connaught Theatre hosted a cinema showing of films produced by the students of Worthing College on the project.

The exhibition is open to the public and will remain in Worthing Museum until the end of May 2015. But the project is far from over. Over the next 4 months we are delivering events all over Worthing and Shoreham and will be working on developing a project website which will remain as a lasting legacy for our research.
