First World War centenary View all categories

The national commemoration of the First World War is shaped around the themes of remembrance, youth and education. Within those themes local communities will tell their own stories which are likely to focus on issues including why remembering matters; honouring bravery and sacrifice; the impact on the development of Britain; the role of allies and the Commonwealth; local connections and contributions to the war; and reconciliation in today’s world.
